LUFKIN, TX (KTRE)- A Lufkin beauty salon destroyed by a fire in October of 2009 is back up and running.

Owner Heather Smith says Elegant Images staff are hard at work in their original location, in a brand new building.

Dream Homes built the new salon in just three months.

Smith is excited to be back, and says she's grateful for all of the support she received following the fire.

Several salons reached out, including the Wright Salon, which allowed Smith and staff to work in their space until she could re-build.

"We're very, very appreciative of everyone that helped us, I mean we've still have had so much support, even moving in and getting started over here. And it really, I think it makes us all appreciate having a nice place to come to work," said Smith.                 

Elegant Images re-opened January 22nd.

Smith says customers remained loyal throughout the fire, and thankfully, business has been stable.
