BANGOR, Wis. -- The Bangor post office is closed indefinitely after mold and mildew were found in the building's ceiling and walls.

The U.S. Postal Service says long-term water leakage in the post office's roof appears to have caused the problem.

Inspection showed significant safety and health hazards from the mold and mildew, which led to the closure.

The post office closure is not expected to impact mail delivery
