Conveyor belt sparks fire at NE Austin post office overnight

Austin firefighters say a fire sparked inside the processing warehouse of a United States Postal Service location in northeast Austin overnight.

According to AFD, the building fire happened at 11:51 p.m. on Tuesday at the post office located at 8225 Cross Park Drive with Exchange Drive. This is just off of Manor Road and Hwy 183.

When crews arrived they found the entire processing warehouse full of smoke and had to vent it with a big fan.

Fire officials said the fire started on a conveyor belt that runs the mail along, but it was small and contained quickly.

AFD couldn’t say if any mail was damaged or lost in the fire.
