ISMAY – U.S. Postal Service officials say mail service will resume in an Eastern Montana town where a fire destroyed the post office.

The fire in early January has prompted some residents of Ismay to worry about their mail. Since the fire, they’ve taken turns dropping off and picking up mail in a town almost 20 miles away.

Postal officials plan to put a mailbox in a community center in tiny Ismay, population 20, Postal Service spokesman James Boxrud said.

Meanwhile, property owners Rita and Gene Nimitz tell the “Billings Gazette” they’re making tentative plans to rebuild the post office, which dated to the 1920s.

A faulty furnace or electrical wiring is believed to have started the blaze.
