How does this keep happening….They are well built and maintained

I’m just happy I have breaks

Trying to save the mail…screw that let my bills burn

We had a safety break fee that says we should not try to save the mail

No ones life is worth the mail.

Not from same fire but you should never get close once you get out.

This is about 25 miles from me and I can guarantee we won’t hear a peep about it!

It’s in the same county as me, yet this is the first I have heard. Hope she is ok.

Does anyone know what happens after that? Are you forced to get back out there and deliver burnt mail or what?

I have tried to find the original article on 33/40 but can’t find anything.

I’m real sure if the fumes from a burning/burnt vehicle are toxic….

Why are they giving applause to this foolish carrier? It’s mail people, replaceable. Honestly, not worth being considered a hero over.

Makes you wonder if yours is next ?

How many does that make just this year?
