Burned building clean-up planned

Posted by Janis Demarest - email

They've sat burned out for more than a year, but in a few days, the face-lift will begin at the site of the downtown Tyler fire.

Demolition is set to begin on five buildings on Spring Avenue, gutted by the fire.

On Tuesday, the Smith County Commissioners awarded the clean-up contract to T.J. Construction.

Brookshire's Company, along with the Genecog Group are donating the funds needed for the reconstruction project.
