Shrewsbury, MA LLV Fire

Last Tuesday, December 12th, the Shrewsbury Fire Department attended an emergency regarding a Grumman mail truck by USPS that caught fire in the Wachusett Avenue area. The driver wasn’t injured and no further incidents were reported, as he was able to get out of the vehicle in time. It was reported that all the postages in the truck were destroyed by the fire, as some of the effected neighbors received a notification by USPS.

#…? Lost count… ?

Somewhere around 95, I think.

I think that’s 3 last week alone.

I believe that it’s the wiring of the LLV’s. Possibly rats climbing up in the engine and chewing wires.

Might carry fire extinguiher

Another one bites the dust.

That’s about 10 miles from me , that office made the national news complaining about a bad postmaster.

How many is that this year?

Celeste Penney see this?

Yikes. Hope my packages weren’t in there… ahh I mean. Hope the drivers ok ?

99 or 100 for year

Windshields leaking rain into fuse box

Huge issue! Mine was replaced this year but still leaks.

We have metal boxes over the fuse box.

So the PO must know that this is the problem John Randell

Wow! What a shame! NOT!!!!! Hope the driver was ok!!

With as often as these LLVs catch fire, how many more are there?

Jk. We live in Tewksbury not Shrewsbury.

Seems like one a day goes up in flames

It almost makes me wonder if the possibility of replacing those vehicles should be considered someday.
