Fire sighter

West Caldwell, NJ, Letter Carrier Kai Rein

Letter Carrier Kai Rein was recently delivering mail in a West Caldwell, NJ, neighborhood when she saw that a customer’s home was on fire.

Rein rushed to alert the woman to the danger — banging on the front door, ringing the doorbell and yelling to her.

The customer escaped unharmed and called 911.

Firefighters soon arrived to battle the blaze.

“Kai’s quick thinking may very well have saved the customer’s life,” said local Postmaster Andrea Robinson.
