Brookshire Bros working on temporary Apple Springs gas station

APPLE SPRINGS, TX (KTRE) - An East Texas gas station that burned to the ground on Thanksgiving will be able to provide services again soon.

The Apple Springs Polk Pick It Up now has a portable building in place being wired for electricity.

Brookshire Brothers Spokesperson Sally Alvis said gas will not be available this week but the portable building is stocked with convenience items  until a new store can be built.

All the employees have been re-assigned to other Polk's or Brookshire Brothers locations.
