Firefighters Had To Wait To Put Out An Office Building Fire Because There Was 100,000 Rounds Of Ammo That Were Exploding

TOMS RIVER, N.J. (AP) — Firefighters have put out a fire at an office building in New Jersey after waiting for 100,000 rounds of ammunition stored inside to explode. The fire at the building in Toms River burned for two hours Thursday morning and ignited the ammunition. Toms River police spokesman Officer Ralph Stocco says that the building's owner is a competitive shooter. Toms River Fire Department District 1 Chief John Gonzalez told the Asbury Park Press ( http://on.app.com/2ao7wOY ) that the ammunition was popping for about 10 minutes. It took another few hours for the fire to stop smoldering. No one was in the building at the time of the fire and no one was hurt. It wasn't clear how the fire began.

Yo what kind of office building has 100,000 thousand rounds of ammunition readily available? I mean i guess the guy was a competitive shooter but why the fuck would you keep that shit in your work place. Like i don’t keep a sack of shotgun shells at the restaurant willynilly. Definitely wouldn’t use my work place to house enough ammo for a militia because that would be dumb and at the price of ammo these days it would be like leaving 40k at the office depending on what this guys running. And also if you’re a competitive shooters how do you not have this shit stocked in one of those gun safes. Pretty sure if you had one of those you would need napalm and thermite to eat through the thick layer of steel. See I try to agree with these gun people, but not when it comes to inconveniencing others. If i were a firefighter and i had to get out of bed early to beat up the fire at your house, I don’t want to have to wait for your armory inside what ever LLC you got in that building to explode. We had a win for the Gun owners the other day at the Modesto Costco. This one takes an L for keeping firefighters from doing their job because they’re dumb.

Round 2 Of Animals Being Used For Crime: Mafia Tie Burning Rags To Cats To Start Forest Fires If They Don’t Get Their Protection Money

DailyMail- Cats are being used as 'arsonists' by the mafia who set them alight to start huge forest fires, claims a park manager death-marked by the mob. President Giuseppe Antoci of Nebrodi, Sicily's largest national park, spoke as firefighters extinguished hundreds of fires which broke out simultaneously across the island last week. Mr Antoci, 48, who survived an assassination attempt by the mafia in May, claimed the crime group 'use the animals as arsonists', and the cats burn all the bushes that they touch, reports Corriere Della Sera. The park director added that five hundred forest fires do not spontaneously combust all at once. He said: 'One of the mob's arson techniques is to tie a petrol-soaked rag to the tail of a cat and set fire to it. As its tail burns, the cat flees in terror into the undergrowth in the woods, setting fire to everything it touches. 'That makes it harder for investigators to figure out where the fire was started and since the cat is eventually incinerated, they never find what caused the fire,' reports The Times. Last week the fires ravaged the island and nearly 6,000 hectares of land went up in smoke. Schools had to be evacuated after a hot sirocco wind blew in from Africa, before forest fires started simultaneously breaking out across the island.

Ha! And you guys scoffed at my idea of using Sea Turtles as drug mules. Animals make for the perfect criminals. Talk a walk though Miami Metro Zoo or Parrot Jungle and you might as well be walking through Attica Correctional with the amount of potential criminals to carry out a ploy. Now this tactic, in practice, is a great idea. Simple find a cat wandering the streets and lure it to you with a little can of fancy feast and turn it into a roaming molotov cocktail because cats naturally hate humans unless they feel like being attention whores and fire burns things. Boom. In principle though, not sure if I’m down with this idea. I mean don’t get me wrong, it makes a statement. But somethings don’t connect. Like “You owe me protection money so im going to set this forest ablaze.” If anything I guess it’ll annoy the park ranger a lot when you have a lazy gig like guarding a park and then someone burns it to ashes, but that’s more for firefighters to deal with. Maybe if they just sent the guy a burnt cat wrapped in brown wrapping paper that said “GIVE ME THE PROTECTION MONEY OR IM GOING TO BURN YOU ALIVE” first to send a message before resorting to Arson on the entire region of Sicily. Not in those words of course, maybe something a little more subtle, but you get the point.
