You expect your UPS delivery driver to bring packages, but it is quite another sight for one to run up your front steps and put out a fire. But, that’s exactly what driver Paul Pereira did early Monday night at 18 Hamilton Ave. He said he was making a turn from Main Street onto Hamilton Avenue shortly after 7 p.m., when something unusual caught his eye.
Pereira, of Manchester, N.H., has worked for United Parcel Service 23 years, currently out of the Chelmsford office. He is a member of Teamsters Local 25. A little late, but Pereira completed making his deliveries about 8:30, Monday night.
