Postmaster Gregory Harrison was recently on his way to work in Charleston, AR, when he spotted a house on fire.
Harrison stopped and asked a bystander to call 911 while he rushed to the scene, where he helped four adults and several pets reach safety.
The Postal Service employee also moved a vehicle in the carport out of harm’s way.
The blaze destroyed the home.
“Due to Greg’s quick actions, lives were saved,” said local Post Office Operations Manager Jeremiah Coffey.
