2005 school fire
On March 5, 2005, at about 4:00 am local time, a 3-alarm fire began in the 5B classroom, destroying the oldest section of the school in fire and water damage. Vancouver College took in the whole school community until the beginning of May 2005, where the burned sections were closed off, and portables were set up in place of the damaged classrooms.
Finally, the school was entirely repaired before the end of the 2005-06 school year, and the portables were removed.
