CBC says smoke never was a risk

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash. -- Welding classes are back in session at Columbia Basin College after claims of contaminated smoke.

According to CBC leaders, a company hired to test the smoke says the initial reports that the air was dangerous were wrong.

Their review showed no problems. Metal hoods were installed over welding equipment to improve air quality.

The college is still looking into complaints about a connection between the smoke and sick students.
