Stopping the spread

Letter Carrier Anessa Darby was recently delivering mail at an apartment complex in Lincoln, NE, when she spotted smoke billowing from a garage.

Darby immediately alerted a maintenance staff member, who called 911.

Firefighters were dispatched to the scene to put out the blaze, which was caused by an electrical malfunction.

A resident of the complex later contacted the local Post Office to thank Darby for taking quick action and preventing the fire from spreading.

Employees featured in “Heroes’ Corner” also receive letters of commendation through the Postmaster General Heroes’ Program. The nomination form is available on Blue.
