GOOD NEWS UPS Driver Extinguishes Fire at Idaho Home
A delivery man arrived just in time to save one Idaho family’s home.
Last Wednesday, Monica Forbes took her garbage out before running errands. A few hours later, she got a call from her daughter, telling her that the trash can had caught fire but that a UPS driver extinguished it.
Steve Walker spotted the fire along his route, pulled the trash can to the center of the driveway and rushed to the front door to alert anyone inside.
Forbes said that her daughter was recovering from having her wisdom tooth removed.
“She would probably have never even noticed,” she said.
Forbes had accidentally placed the trash can on top of ashes from a family fire.
The Forbes family gave Walker a “hero kit” to thank him for saving their home.
