Fire destroys Trafford, Ala. post office

TRAFFORD, Ala. (AP) - Trafford's mayor says mail service will continue despite a fire that destroyed the town's post office.

Firefighters were called to the fire in the concrete block building on Warrior-Trafford Road about midnight Saturday. Trafford Fire Chief Alan Camp says firefighters from around the area battled the blaze for several hours.

Camp says a couple of firefighters were treated for heat-related problems. He says most of the roof was destroyed and the interior was gutted.

Niblett says inspectors were on the scene Sunday investigating the fire. He says he gave postal officials permission to use the community center at Town Hall until they can get a temporary post office in place later in the week. He says most of the mail survived, but much of it got wet.
