Since October 30th, 2001 United Parcel Service (UPS)
has experienced four known fires which remain unexplained.
The purpose of this web site is to share the details of these fires
in an effort to educate UPS employees and their customers and
the general public as to this potentially dangerous and catastrophic situation.

"I find his concerns, particularly in the wake of "9/11", to have been in good faith. Even though the fire department was able to extinguish the fire, because of its magnitude and unknown origin, one is left to wonder why the aftermath was thrown in a dumpster ( by UPS ) and the truck was left dockside to continue being unloaded without further investigation."
