CARTHAGE, New York (WWNY) - The Carthage Post Office is temporarily closed.

U.S. Postal Service officials say sparks and smoke were seen coming from an electrical line Tuesday afternoon.

A spokesman says all employees and mail remained safe during the incident.

At this time, Carthage PO Box customers may pick up their mail at the Watertown Post Office.

Carthage customers who receive street delivery are not affected.

Postal officials say they’re assessing the situation and a timeframe to resume operations in Carthage has yet to be determined.

They say the facility will remain closed until safety reviews and repairs are completed.
