After completing her deliveries recently, City Carrier Assistant Holly Bobadilla returned to the Red Bluff, CA, Post Office and saw smoke billowing from a neighboring building.

She informed Letter Carrier Devin Medeiros, who called 911.

Custodian Joseph Belknap also spotted the spreading blaze and grabbed a fire extinguisher to have on hand as he and his co-workers safely evacuated the building.

Customer Services Supervisor Christopher Jeffery, a former firefighter, rushed to let nearby businesses and residents know of the fire.

Firefighters soon arrived and extinguished the blaze.
