The postman in a burned down California city

On Tuesday, October 10, US operator Douglas Throne arrived in the city of Santa Rosa, burnt to ashes after the California forest fires, in order to shoot a video from a drone for a television program. When he arrived in the ashes and started to work, he noticed a lonely postal van wandering about the deserted streets.

The white car drove past smoldering fragments of houses, stopped at the curb and, as if nothing had happened, left correspondence in charred boxes. These chilling frames resemble a ghostly post-apocalyptic world.

“It was so strange to watch it – it really carried the mail,” recalls the Throne. “I was surprised also because most of the roads were blocked, but he obviously had access.”

As it turned out, the postman came to Santa Rosa at the request of the fire victims, who want to return to their plots to pick up the surviving things and at the same time mail sent to their address.

Forest fires in California have been blazing for several days now. According to the latest information, the list of victims reached 36 people, destroyed 5.7 thousand buildings, about 400 people.
