I was real busy writing my research paper and dropped the ball on this story (sorry).
Hundreds of pieces of holiday mail were destroyed when a delivery truck from a Danbury post office caught fire on Thursday just over the New York line.
The mail cannot be salvaged or replaced, but customers expecting mail-order packages and have a tracking number can likely get replacements, postal officials said.
The truck was carrying mail for about 200 customers and the U.S. Postal Service is sending letters to everyone on the route to inform of the accident.
The fire ignited near Brewster, N.Y., just after the driver noticed what he thought was steam coming from the engine.
The driver pulled over and, officials said, the truck "went up like a cheap toaster."
According to WFSB Channel 3, the cause of the fire was engine-related.
Thanks to a reader for the heads-up on this story.
UPDATE: What? An accident like this happened in the area and the News-Times posts an AP story of the incident on their site? Come on guys...
