PATRICK CO., Va. -

A new elementary school in Patrick County closer to opening, two years after a fire destroyed the old one.

Construction crews are finishing work on Meadows of Dan Elementary School.

School leaders say it's set to open next year when students come back from winter break.

Students and teachers have spent the last two years working in several mobile units.

In August 2011 a fire destroyed the old Meadows of Dan Elementary School and forced the county to rebuild.
