Postwoman Saves Packages From Burning US Mail Truck

As noted in the company's press release, it's expecting to deliver over 16 billion cards, letters, and packages during the 2016 holiday season, including 750 million packages.

The fire started in the engine compartment of the truck and spread from there, according to firefighters.

BJP's Parliamentary Party in its meeting held earlier in the day hailed the Maharashtra unit for its win, Javadekar said. But the people appear to have rejected the campaign, Pandya said, adding the result was a "moral victory" for his party.

She also says they're expecting to deliver about 7-million more parcels than previous year. So obviously you're going to want to get your packages in the mail as soon as possible, but the post office staff says they're well equipped to deal with the holiday rush.

The fire was out within minutes of firefighters arriving, but the fire department gives all the credit to the mail carrier and passerby for saving Christmas for many who had packages on the truck. Some of the parcels were wet but they weren't burned.

The U.S. Postal Service confirmed the truck was carrying USPS mail and packages.
