— Crews are already rebuilding a burned-out elementary school.

Lightning struck Cedar Grove in Rocky Mount more than a week ago. The fire caused more than $700,000 in damage.

School officials are trying to relocate mobile classrooms to get students back on campus. They are currently attending Swift Creek Elementary School.

Officials hope to have the new and improved Cedar Grove Elementary open in six to seven months.
