This FedEx driver probably didn't build "fight a fire" into his daily route.

A video doorbell camera captured the driver grabbing a hose and helping put out a fence fire at a California home last week, sticking around until firefighters showed up but leaving before the homeowners could talk to him, CBS Los Angeles reported.

“I wish I could have been able to speak to him and say thank you,” homeowner Celena Pastran Rios told the station.

In the video, the driver can be heard calling out "knock on the door," likely in an effort to make sure no one was home, Rios said. The fire had started on the fence between her home and the neighbors' home in the Eagle Rock neighborhood of Los Angeles. She and her husband, Albert, have been unable to identify the driver since the incident.

“I feel like there’s a lot of unsung heroes during this pandemic,” Rios told CBS Los Angeles. “I can’t believe a FedEx driver would go above and beyond his call of duty.”
