CORPUS CHRISTI - The post office at McKinzie and Stonewall, which serves the Annaville area, was heavily damaged by a fire Tuesday evening.
While the office is closed, we're told mail and delivery services will not be disrupted due to the fire. They'll just handled operations out of different locations.
For service customers can go to the lcoation at 5 Points - 4101 U.S. 77, Corpus Christi, TX.
Officials will figure out what mail is salvageable so it can be sorted and sent out as normal. It's not clear how much mail was lost at this point.
The fire started in the attic area around 9:30 p.m. and took more than an hour to get under control.
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.
