The state Department of Treasury is working to assist residents in many Bergen County towns whose mail, sent to government offices between Sept. 7 and Sept. 10, burned in a truck fire last month, according to NorthJersey.com.
Affected zip codes begin with 070 to 076, 078, 079, 088 and 089.
All of the mail that was on the truck on Sept. 11 was destroyed in the accident near Hightstown on the New Jersey Turnpike when the driver collided with another truck. The driver of the truck carrying the mail was killed, NorthJersey.com reported.

Both the River Edge and Oradell zip codes begins with 076, and residents may have been affected by the fire.
As of Tuesday, the USPS Consumer Affairs Office have not received any inquiries about lost mail, according to George Flood, the postal service's regional spokesperson. But concerned customers may call 800-275-8777 to report lost mail, he said.
The governor's office has ordered that all state agencies assist residents who may have been affected.
"We're making arrangements to try to help out people whose mail was destroyed in this unfortunate fire," Bill Quinn, spokesperson for the state Department of Treasury said. "If people had payments that were due, we're extending the deadline on that until at least Oct. 15."
