ALPINE TOWNSHIP, Mich.—The owner of an Alpine Township business destroyed by fire nearly five months ago is rebuilding.
Construction on the new Fox Pools began shortly after planning commissioners approved the plans last month. The 8,000 square foot building will be slightly larger than the previous business and feature an updated showroom, offices and storage space. The business will remain at 6411 Alpine Ave. NW.
Fox Pools has been operating out of a temporary space on its lot since the June 25 fire. Firefighters allowed the fire to burn because of the environmental dangers posed by pool chemicals in the facility.
Township officials say the owner of Fox Pools hopes to open the new facility by the next pool season.
