TYRONZA, AR -

6:21 p.m., Dec. 1 UPDATE: The Tyronza Post Office reopened this week in a temporary building. 

An Aug. 14 fire at the main post office on Main Street damaged the building. In the interim, residents had to travel to Marked Tree to pick up their mail, buy stamps or purchase money orders. 

The temporary building is right next to the post office on Main Street and across from the city park. 


The Tyronza Post Office caught fire early Sunday morning. 

According to Chief David Wood with the Tyronza Volunteer Fire Department, a firefighter was on his way home when he noticed smoke coming from the post office. 

Firefighters quickly responded and were able to contain the fire. 

According to Wood, the fire burned through the ceiling of the post office, but only caused minor damage.  

Firefighters were able to board up the ceiling.

Wood does not believe any mail was damaged during the fire. 

He believes the fire resulted from a short in a light fixture inside the post office.
