Peter McFarland, Augusta, ME

It was an odd and ominous sight: a mattress ablaze atop a motorcycle, leaning against a wooden section of an apartment building. When Augusta, ME, Letter Carrier Peter McFarland recently came across the hazard, he found one spot that wasn’t burning and pulled the mattress away from the building. He then alerted a resident, who extinguished the fire and later called the local Postmaster to praise McFarland for averting a catastrophe.
