heroDarlaObrian_RightAlignd-storyRural Carrier Darla O’Brien was recently delivering mail in Hennessey, OK, when she spotted a grass fire that threatened a barn and a tractor.

Seeing no one else around, O’Brien immediately called 911 and safely stamped out part of the blaze to prevent it from destroying the structure and equipment.

Firefighters soon arrived on the scene.

The cause of the conflagration, which stretched to a half-mile in length, was not determined.
