Trouble in Newark

The Grande Costa Davorio is a cargo vessel that was docked in Port Newark on July 5th when a fire broke out (gCaptain). The crew aboard the vessel attempted to contain the blaze, but their efforts were unsuccessful and local firefighters had to be called. While the ship was significantly damaged in the blaze, the true loss was the lives of two Newark firefighters who died in the line of duty. Their bravery and sacrifice will never be forgotten. Six others were unfortunately injured in the event.
