BATTLE GROUND, Wash. (AP) - “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night” nor, apparently, a flaming truck managed to deter one letter carrier from saving her mail.

The Columbian reports (https://is.gd/j4Sj6u ) that a U.S. Postal Service worker was driving her southwest Washington route on Friday morning when she noticed smoke coming from the hood of her truck. That’s when she pulled over and called 911, then got all the mail out of the truck.

Clark County fire crews found the vehicle in engulfed in flames.

USPS spokesman Peter Hass says no mail was damaged or destroyed, though there may have been a little singeing. Hass says in cases where mail was singed but the address is still legible, the item will be delivered in a plastic baggie with an apology note.

The letter carrier was unhurt. Her name was not released.

Hass says she just got another truck and resumed her route.
