Ok follow along; pictured are two firefighters (and friends), one from MA (Damian Drella) and one from NJ (Damien Danis). Both have the same first name, but spelled differently, and both have the same initials, DD. Damian and Damien always seem to unexpectedly reunite. One time they were together in Cambridge Mass for a 10-alarm fire, last year they were in Hasbrouck Heights NJ for a garage fire, and this time they were reunited on September 26th for a 3-alarm fire in Passaic NJ.
