Inmates set fire to several buildings on August 21, 2009.

Six buildings, including the kitchen, were uninhabitable.

The warden tells the Danville Advocate-Messenger there have been big changes since then.

The prison has almost 1,100 inmates and will slowly increase to more than 1,200. Which was the population before the riot.
