LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Almost four months after a post office in eastern Jefferson County closed because brown recluse spiders were found in the building, the U.S. Postal Service says it's reopening.

The Fisherville Post Office will reopen on Monday. It closed on April 27 due to safety concerns over the spiders.

Taylorsville Postmaster Sandra Caudill says there have been numerous pesticide treatments and some patching on the outside and that the building has been deemed safe by the maintenance department.

Box customers have been picking up their mail at Eastwood Post Office but will be able to return to Fisherville on Monday.
