Students of Gatineau's École secondaire Mont-Bleu, which caught fire during the September tornadoes, will be relocated to a nearby government facility for the rest of the school year.

It's believed a lightning strike set the school on fire, September 21.

This week, Mont-Bleu students began attending classes at École secondaire de l’Île, on the island of Hull, forcing that school's students to attend classes later in the day.

The federal government has made the Asticou Centre, just down the road from Mont-Bleu, available to students for the rest of the school year beginning in early December.

Public servants and military personnel who currently work at Asticou are being moved to other areas of the building or relocated to other government offices.
