The bin pictured above was outside of the post office when Living in Oakland Park reporters arrived on the scene and is possibly the bin in question. At the time the photo was taken, there were no visible signs of smoke or flames. A member of the Living In Oakland Park Facebook group noted: “I just got back from the post office, and it’s just fine, no signs of a fire”, said Ronnie Damian Rodriguez.
One member of the Living in Oakland Park Facebook Group showed concern for their mail during one of the busiest mailing seasons of all time. “I just mailed all of the Christmas cards out”, said Will Williamson. If you are concerned, like Williamson, that your mail was affected, you can contact the United States Post Office via phone or email at https://www.usps.com/help/contact-us.htm.
