Home flooding averted thanks to keen-eyed carrier

The Postmaster of Littleton, CO, received a letter from a customer who wanted to thank her letter carrier, Jon Crane, for stopping … a home flood.

A pipe leading outdoors to a sprinkler system had burst during a cold snap while the customer was away from home. While on his route, Crane noticed the gushing water, walked over and turned off the valve.

“He was the reason my basement had only two inches of water instead of two feet, saving our home untold damage,” the customer wrote.
