An engine compartment fire spread to the rest of the vehicle at North Academy Boulevard and Carefree Circle, said Fire Lt. Tarrick Patterson. Most of the mail had been delivered when a fire truck arrived on scene about 12:45 p.m., Patterson said, but some was damaged in the blaze. Firefighters were able to recover boxes of mail, he said.
No one was injured.
