Nebraska employee stomps out fire

Osmond, NE, Rural Carrier Valerie Hoffman

Osmond, NE, Rural Carrier Valerie Hoffman was delivering mail recently when she saw smoke coming from grass near a bean field.

Hoffman ran to the fire and stomped it out. The farmer thanked Hoffman and said the fire may have been caused by a spark when he moved harvesting equipment.

“It was all in a day’s work,” Hoffman said.

Postmaster Joanne Sullivan said Hoffman’s actions reflect her concern for her customers.

“She is a hard worker and not afraid to step up to the plate. I am happy and proud to have her in our office,” Sullivan said.
