A bunch of folks in Poolesville will not be getting their catalogs and credit card offers.

   Montgomery County Fire Rescue units responded to a fire in a U.S. Postal Service truck on Friday afternoon. The postal pyre occurred at approximately 2:00 pm on Friday, Sept. 21 in the 17100 block of Chiswell Road in Poolesville.

   Paramedic engine 714 from the Upper Montgomery County Volunteer Fire Station 14 and ambulance 722 responded to the fire which was a vehicle from the Poolesville Post Office. According to MCFRS senior spokesman Pete Piringer, arriving fire rescue units encountered a fully involved mail truck and quickly extinguished the fire.
