Kansas postal worker saves Christmas packages after truck catches fire

A US Postal Service employee in Kansas was out on a delivery in Osawatomie Sunday when he suddenly smelled and saw smoke coming from his mail truck. The postman quickly pulled to the side of the road and realized he wasn’t able to control the fire. He then sprang into action and rescued packages from the back of his truck. The front of the truck was fully engulfed when the fire department arrived.

I recall the engine on the ice cream truck my ex-wife drove catching on fire. All she did was eat as much I've cream as she could because by the time the tow truck would arrive it would all be melted.

this is LITERALLY my mailman.. not like I am so proud of his actions I metaphorically claim him.. this is the exact guy in the exact truck that puts my letters in my mailbox.. surprised this made the national news at all to be honest.. my son works for the local UPS ground so I heard about this almost instantly.

Even in a story where there is zero politics, or opinion, the communists find a way to spew their stupid views. It's vile and atrocious, but shows why you are such negative, sad, toxic people. You literally can't see positive anywhere that is not exactly your doctrine.
