Springfield firefighters knock down machinery fire at USPS bulk mail center

SPRINGFIELD — Firefighters have extinguished a morning machinery fire that sparked at the U.S. Postal Service’s Bulk Mail Center on Page Boulevard, Springfield fire officials announced Saturday.

Crews responded to reports of a fire at the USPS facility located at 1800 Page Blvd. just before 7:30 a.m. Saturday, according to Dennis Leger, aide to Fire Commissioner Bernard J. Calvi.

Firefighters quickly extinguished the blaze, which started under a conveyor belt as a result of friction heat, Leger said.

Officials did not provide an estimate for the damage at the USPS Bulk Mail Center.
