AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - A mail truck erupted into flames Monday afternoon in the Goshen Plantation neighborhood.
The fire was reported just after 2 p.m. in the 4000 block of Rio Pinar Drive, according to Augusta Fire dispatches.
A witness said the truck appeared to be a total loss.
The truck was removed quickly after the fire, but there was a large black spot on the street and in an adjacent yard. A tree and mailbox were scorched and a garbage cart was partially melted.
We’ve reached out to the U.S. Postal Service about what residents of the south Augusta neighborhood off Old Waynesboro Road should do if they believe their mail was lost.
