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.

Why was a generator running at night? If it was a Generator test, it is done in daylight hours. Expect more fires with so many pants on fire...

There are few unconnected coincidences in this life. Although it is unlikely the general public will know what caused this fire, someone in fact DOES know what caused it. No doubt some incriminating evidence was destroyed either directly or during the head fake distraction of the fire itself.

Unfortunately no casualties were reported.

It seemed the gunman concentrated his fire to the 9th floor, we'll never know what his motive was.

Back to you Bob and your 23 hour long special "What happened was the Russians".

Had to put that fire out quick or else there would be a potential audit of what is on site... nothing.

Yes - and it was just collecting more dust - no gold.

According to Rupert Sheldrake there are no coincidences...

Maybe the fire is the ironic manifestation of the Federal reserve's burning the world reserve currency?

Most likely it's a coincidence.  If you go down the rabbit hole of extracating subconscious phenomena (what people often subscribe to external supernatural forces) and have some reason to do so (usually because it's repeating or continuous for some period of time with no explanation) then you would look at whether it was a collective unconscious phenomenon or an individual.  Big atmospheric manifestations are usually collective (Fatima, UFO's, mass creature sightings).  Fire is usually pent up angst and rage, or released angst and rage.  Usually when somebody has allowed themselves to be a door mat too long.  I doubt God targets chimneys and air conditioners, but we know that we can and do affect such things.  The people who witness it (percipients) would likely be the source and it would happen in their presence.  This just looks like a chimney fire but it could be a message from us to us... you never know.

Never underestimate Malkuth.  This could be either 1) a deliberate distraction while someone was doing something shady on another floor or 2) the result of somebody burning The Evidence.  One can assume there is plenty of Evidence at the NY Fed that one insider or another would prefer never see the light of day.  No need for hypothetical psychological projection at all.  And I doubt that anyone at the Fed needs to practice conjuring salamanders at work.  Those folks are wealthy enough to have dedicated workrooms for such things.

Although it could be bounced residuals from someone with nothing to do with the Fed directly.  One time when we were doing a rather intense spell, my ex's Fire Summoning got a little enthusiastic and the neighbor's wiring caught.  We had warded our own place perfectly well, but I hadn't counted on the ex's spectacular firepower combined with his total lack of control.  After another year of "accidents", I discouraged him from playing magic outside of mass ritual events.  Anyway, New York is big enough and overcrowded enough, you never know what the neighbors might be up to on a slow weekend.

I bet they made it to the roof of that building much faster than they breached the door which was allegedly already swiss cheese via 200 gun shots at Mandalay Bay.

 We need a list of the stupid idiots that put out the fire. WTF were they thinking?

Someone was probably trying to burn some more documents and got out of hand.
