Rural Carrier Tanya Morris was recently delivering mail in Perry, GA, when she spotted smoke pouring out of a customer’s home.

Morris immediately called 911 and alerted neighbors, who converged on the scene to check on the homeowner, who is disabled and couldn’t escape on his own.

The neighbors pulled the man to safety through a bedroom window and rescued his dog. Moments later, several explosions rocked the home.

“Tanya’s quick response saved this customer’s life,” said local Postmaster Larry Dykes.

The man is recovering from smoke inhalation and burns.
