Postal service truck delivering mail goes up in flames in Wilton
WILTON — A U.S. Postal Service mail truck delivering mail at 141 Shawnee Drive caught fire Friday morning and burned along with some of its contents, fire rescue Chief Sonny Dunham said.
Wilton police and Wilton and Farmington fire rescue departments responded to the report of the fire at about 8:23 a.m.
Shawnee Drive is off Mohawk Drive, which is off Voter Hill Road in Farmington and Wilton.
It appears it shorted out under the dashboard, he said. The driver got out of the vehicle safely and saved some mail.
“There was no stopping the fire,” Dunham said. “We were able to save some of the mail but not all of it.”
