Postal Vehicle Catches On Fire In Lexington

Posted: Updated:

A lot of Kentuckians have not received their mail because of the weather and now a few more residents are going to be missing it because of a vehicle fire in Lexington.

A supervisor with the postal service says a mailman was delivering a package on Dale Hollow Drive when he heard a pop come from his truck. Moments later the vehicle was consumed by flames.

The driver was not hurt. Neighbors called 911. Dale Hollow Drive was temporarily shut down.

The post office supervisor says they will do their best to try to identify the mail that was in the truck but don't think they'll be able to get much done. If you believe you had important documents, you can contact the Lansdowne Postal Office to get more information.
