Fire Breaks Out On The Roof Of The New York Fed

Tyler Durden's picture

Dozens of firefighters are fighting a blaze which broke out on the top of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, NBC New York reports. The fire broke out sometime before 8:40 p.m. on the roof of the 14-story building at 33 Liberty St. in Lower Manhattan, the location of the world's biggest gold vault as Simon Gruber knows too well.

Several videos show numerous fire trucks at the scene around 9 p.m. 

Contrary to recurring rumors that the fire was created from excess money creation, the FDNY said that a generator on the roof of the building caused the fire in a chimney, although the severity of the damage to the building is not known.

No injuries have been reported.

The Federal Reserve Bank of New York is the most important of the 12 regional Reserve Banks that are part of the Federal Reserve system, the central banking system of the United States. As previously reported, the world's most important trading desk, also known as the "Plunge Protection Team", is located on the 9th floor of the New York Fed.

Here are some snapshots.

I’m reminded of the scene from the ORIGINAL Ghostbusters when Rick Moranis is running around outside GB HQ after the EPA guys shut down the containment grid screaming, “It’s a sign! This is the sign!!”

And Janine (secretary) answers with, “It’s a sign alright...of going out of business.”

It’s a sign. Be Leary.

Melania just got a new round of Botox and is looking good again.  But oddly, I don't like her accent.  When I hear her speak, she is not as sexy as when she is silent.

The void of space is non-existence, and all matter is not really matter, but existence itself.  There is only existence and non-existence, and both are part of existence, so technically, there is only existence.

Even if existence ceased to exist, it's occurrence and subsequent dissolution is all an existence within itself.

I think you're right about the 'tox.

But what she needs is a good haircut. 

That long hair is dated & she'd look better with it shorter. Add a new husband and she's got it.

Thank God© no one was injured.

Thoughts and prayers to the brave firefighters who battled the blaze, and the honorable men and women employed by the New York Federal Reserve.

Hopefully there is a large wooden cross on the roof with Yellen nailed to it. 


It's because they fitted jet engines to the printing press.

Bernanke will fly by and put the fire out with helicopter money.

While the firefighters battle the fire on the roof, someone from the FED is loading those fire trucks with gold.

This is the real "The roof is on fire".   The was a great video with things burning in a microwave but it seems to be gone now.  I don't know what that crappy video is in the article, but this is what it's supposed to be.

if they are going to dustify the building, can they at least wait for the firemen to leave

I guess they forgot to clean up all the wax from those satanic black candles they light on the roof.

Uh-ooh, the building is going to collapse. I’m sure all the gold will melt and dissapear.

They've destroyed the country.

They've destoyed their credibility.

Now they're destroying the evidence.

They are all stinking rich.

Job done

15 fire trucks? If it was your house they might send a fireman over to spit on it.

msamour's picture

Anyone know how much glod can be stacked on a fire truck? I'm willing to bed those fire trucks did not leave empty...

hangemhigh77's picture

To fight this blaze I would drop tons of gas on it.

JailBanksters's picture

OH No, that's where we keep all the records as to owns what.

Unfortuately, there's nothing left to audit.

What a sham  , I was so looking forward to completing the Audit.
