Tuckahoe Elementary Reopens After November Fire

Posted: Updated:

HENRICO, VA—Students from Tuckahoe Elementary School are headed back to the classroom Thursday morning after a November fire damaged the building.

Students will return to their classrooms Thursday.

A group of nearly 700 students have been attending Short Pump Middle School, while repairs were being made at Tuckahoe Elementary School.

The fire started when a light malfunctioned, and fell onto a couch. The couch then caught fire, and the flames spread.

Officials say while the fire only burned in one classroom, the school suffered extensive smoke damage.
