Letter Carrier Jovanka Glover was recently delivering mail to a house in Crowley, LA, when she was alarmed by the sight of smoke pouring from the door slot.
Glover instantly became worried that residents Antoinette and Leonard Pete could be in jeopardy, so she banged on the door while calling 911.
Firefighters soon arrived and entered the home, where they discovered food burning on the stove.
The Petes, who were not there at the time, were grateful for Glover’s alertness and concern.
“It will be easy to replace a door versus an entire house,” Antoinette said.
