Classes scheduled for Edmondson Hall at UH Mānoa will be cancelled on Monday due to damage to the building‘s classrooms, labs and offices.

Damage stems from a 3rd-floor office fire that apparently started sometime Saturday evening and caused a water pipe to burst. Water from the pipe extinguished the fire but continued to flood the building until it was discovered at about 8 a.m. Sunday morning.

Departments affected by the damage in Edmondson Hall will have further information Monday on future class scheduling.
