    Without looking at the video, that looks like a mail truck. We'll see in a minute!

    EDIT: Yep, at least the carrier saved the mail, at least from the fire. I don't think it survived the soaking the fireman gave it.

    Anybody else think that the mail truck is made from the material that Mattel uses in their toys?

    A little sheet metal work, some Bondo, a fresh coat of paint, a few other incidentals and she'll be good as new. :)

    The postal truck bodies are aluminum, it was melting. If the fireman had come in from the curbside they wouldn't have ruined the mail....the truck was a total loss way before the arrived anyway.

    Not impressed with the job of the Fire Co ... took a long time to get things rolling in the suppression department and then they didn't seem to take into account the mail that was removed from the truck ... save as much property as you can safely ... mail, road, etc. Truck was toast from their arrival.

    On a different note, when you see something like that, stand back ... when those tires pop they can really scare you! I had skid loader tires explode right beside me during a barn fire ... I came close to needing to clean my britches!

    Wonder who gets the job of stuffing all the damaged pieces of mail into those "Sorry, stuff happens" clear plastic envelopes the post office uses.

    I'm not sure who would do that, I'm guessing it would probably one of the mail handlers.

    Hope he wasn't smoking a joint and it was the cause of the fire.
