A drone video captured by professional drone operator and photographer Douglas Thron, reportedly before the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued a no-fly restriction, showed fire-wrecked Santa Rosa, California on Wednesday where a Postal Services worker was seen dutifully delivering mail to addresses- the delivery van winding its way through rubbles of houses, blackened trees and wrecked remains of cars.

The video garnered over 500,000 views on YouTube at the time of publishing this story. According to Mercury News, aerial photographer Thron was shooting a video footage of Coffey Park, a neighborhood that had been ripped apart by the recent fires starting Sunday, when he was surprised to notice the clean, white USPS truck.

“It was a trippy thing – he was actually delivering the mail,” Thron told the paper. “I was shocked to see him because most of the roads were blocked off, but he obviously had access.”

Thron, who has had experience shooting and covering other natural disasters told SFGate that he couldn’t believe what he saw while filming the footage, considering the extent of the damage caused by the fire.

"It looked like a bomb went off, or someone flew over and bombed the whole area," he told SFGate. "It looked like a war zone. [The fires] burned everything down to the ground."

He said that seeing the postman driving through the devastation added to the surreal nature of the entire scene in the neighborhood.

“I did a double take,” Thron told SFGate. “I watched him go to a half dozen mailboxes … It was like I was seeing something he wasn’t seeing.”

According to SFGate, the USPS said that the worker had been working after some residents requested to continue delivering mail to standing mailboxes.

Thron expected to capture the wreckage of the Tubbs fire, which is said to have scorched 34,000 acres and it has only been 10 percent contained. He did not expect to see a determined postal worker performing his duties and said he was surprised.

The fires mostly ignited Sunday and were driven by winds up to 79 mph and dry conditions. Till Wednesday gusts of 20 to 40 mph were seen and the humidity was extremely low and no rain is in the forecast for the next few days.
