  1. On October 29, 1994 Firefighter Michael DeLane of the Newark (NJ) Fire Department was climbing down an aerial ladder after roof operations at a two alarm fire. As DeLane passed a saw to a fellow firefighter, it came in close proximity to a power line, electrocuting both of them. DeLane was killed and the other firefighter injured. One civilian died in the fire, which had been extinguished at the time of the accident.
