Just thought that I would post this here in case some people are from where the truck came from and mailed things out.

Whoa. Hopefully they can find at least one of the addresses on most of it so that people will know what happened to their mail, but yikes. I hope there wasn't anything really important and hard or expensive to replace on that truck.

Hmm, that last photo shows coins spilling out of a FedEx box.

 

We were told they were taking the mail to Syracuse to be looked over etc.

Well, so far I don't see any PBS wrappers!  Maybe the Media Mail didn't make this trip.  Hope so. 

I've gotten a couple of damaged pieces of mail - some of it wasn't even mine.  But none of it was burned.  I'd guess that the rest would be water-damaged.  Guess this counts as another possibility for using plastic???  ;D

ETA - Another reason for "damaged by USPS".

OMG...I thought this was about OUR mail truck, you know the little "toot toot" truck that goes with the PBS DC. ::sheepish grin:: 

As others have said, I hope there was nothing valuable or irreplaceable on the truck!

I hope the driver is okay.  They didn't mention if he got out before the fire or not...

Both drivers were able to get out safe.
