CORPUS CHRISTI - The post office serving the Annaville area was heavily damaged by a fire Tuesday evening.
It broke out at the station at McKinzie and Stonewall around 9:30 and took about 80 minutes to put out.
Smoke and flames could be soon coming from the roof for miles away.
Firefighters immediately called for a second alarm after arriving, due to the size of the building and the intensity of the fire.
No injuries were reported, as the post office was closed.
However, that also made fighting the fire difficult, because firefighters had to use a power saw to cut through heavy locks on several doors to gain access to the building and reach the flames.
The extent of the damage is unclear, as is the operational status of the post office.
