LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Las Vegas post office is reopening two weeks after a two-alarm fire that started in a rooftop Port-a-Potty damaged the building.

Postal officials say the retail portion of the post office, located at 455 E. Pebble, was scheduled to reopen on Saturday. Customers have been using a mobile unit parked at the facility to buy stamps and conduct other business.

Crews had to clean up water and human waste left over after firefighters tried to contain the blaze on July 6. Nobody was injured and no mail was burned.

The portable toilet was on the roof while construction crews worked there. It's unclear exactly how the fire started.

Postal service spokesman David Rupert said the total cost of the damage has not yet been tabulated.
