A video posted to YouTube by professional drone pilot and photographer Douglas Thron shows a United States Postal Service mail truck making deliveries in Santa Rosa’s fire-ravaged Coffey Park neighborhood. "It was a trippy thing -- he was actually delivering the mail," he said.


The video shows an ever-familiar USPS mail truck driving past burned vehicles. The mail carrier can be seen placing deliveries in mailboxes amid ash and rubble where homes once stood. Thron says he does work for Discovery Channel, Good Morning America and Today Show and after witnessing the damage caused by the firestorm he remarked, "I’ve covered wildfires and floods before and I’ve never seen anything like it. I’d see areas that were totally fine, but then get to Fountaingrove Inn and The Hilton and see them wiped-out. It was unbelievable."
