On Jan. 27, a woman was killed in a raging house fire and a firefighter was injured with he fell out the second-story window.

Dover Firefighter Allen Bell captured his comrade's bail out on his helmet camera. Prior before falling, the firefighter is heard calling out for a ladder.

According to FireVideo.net, Bell and the rest of the RIT team worked to transport the ladder to the firefighter before he fell. The firefighter was carried to the front of the house by the crew.

He was transported to Morristown Memorial Hospital and was not seriously hurt, Randolph Fire Chief William Wagner told The Star-Ledger.

The blaze began about 11:30 a.m. in a first-floor bedroom and quickly spread through the ceiling. The 84-year-old woman's two son were able to escape without injury.
