Do your duty and a little more than future take care of itself!!!!!
A UPS driver Paul Pereira was about to deliver his last packet of the day when he noticed smoke pouring from a nearby house.
While the neighbors were busy in capturing the videos, the brave deliveryman jumped into the scene to rescue the family. He asked someone to get a hose. After getting a hose from a neighbor, he ran to the house.
He started attacking the fire and with his continuous efforts, he succeeded in putting out the flames. He banged on the door to see if anyone was inside the burning house.
Brian Lavender, his wife, and daughter were upstairs at the time of the blaze, but had reportedly thought the smell was coming from a neighbor’s barbecue.
‘The next thing [my wife] knows, there was banging (and) ‘Fire, fire, fire’ get out!’ said Lavender.
The cause of the fire is a mystery, but one thing is for sure: the damage could have been much worse if the man from “United Problem Solvers” hadn’t jumped into action.
The Lavender family is forever grateful. Wife Tracy gave him a big hug and her husband said, ‘If it wasn’t for him, I think the house would have been totaled.’
Neighbor Peter Brown said that the UPS man had knocked down the door to the house before the fire department arrived.
‘Had he not been there, that entire porch would have been engulfed,’ he said.
But the humble Pereira said he’s no hero. ‘I don’t feel I am a hero. I think anybody would do it if they saw a fire, you know, act on it,’ he said.
