Fleas Stop U.S. Mail Delivery in Sacramento Neighborhood

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Neither snow nor rain nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of thier appointed rounds.

But fleas are a whole other issue.

The U.S. Postal Service is suspending mail delivery in a Sacramento neighborhood over carrier claims of a flea infestation. About 50 homes on a three block stretch of Thornhill Drive in the Rosemont section of Sacramento are not receiving mail.

Sherri Byrd lives in one of the homes where delivery has stopped. She says there is no flea problem on her block and she’s filed a formal complaint with the U.S. Postal Service.

“I just think it’s ridiculous,” Byrd said. “I can’t pay my bills I can’t get a hold of any of my mail.”

Others on the block are equally miffed by the flea fears.
