On this day: Jan. 17, 1924

R. A. VanHoy, employed by the Pacific Power & Light Company as the caretaker of the Pasco substation was killed when with both hands he caught hold of a high line carrying 66,000 volts. He was found on the ground with his clothing aflame. The line had been shut down earlier in the day and he apparently thought it was still out of commission.
