Race against time

City Carrier Assistant Holly Kleve was recently on duty in a Cresco, IA, neighborhood when she spotted flames shooting out of a garage at a residence.

Kleve immediately stopped, called 911 and pounded on the front door of the home.

Firefighters soon arrived to battle the blaze, which destroyed the garage and damaged several vehicles in it, including a race car.

The residents were unharmed.
