Apparently there was a huge explosion outside the Vatican walls. Pics on Twitter show large thick smoke plumes eminating from an area around the Vatican walls. The cause of it is still unclear but there are unconfirmed reports that it was from a explosion. Story is still developing. I'll try to keep this thread updated.

Edit: Reports coming in that it was a fire at a car wrecking depot. Doesn't explain the loud booms people heard though.

I just read a report saying it might have been a local garage outside the Vatican walls.




One news outlet in Rome claimed a large fire had erupted at an auto garage or wrecking yard near the walls of the Vatican

I hope it's nothing more sinister because that area is alway full of people

Yeah! Mirror has pics and video : Mirror


An unconfirmed report claims the fire is "burning in a car yard" a couple of kilometres away from the Vatican.


Peace

The are typically drained but if there is a small amount left that is more dangerous than a full tank since as the remaining fuel warms it becomes a large volume of vapor which is very volatile.

Yeeep. Throw in some tires catching fire and there's your thick cloud of black smoke.

I left any speculation out intentionally because as for now there is no indication that it was a terrorist attack. There are also still no casualties reported.

It looks like a fire at a garage, I see no need for political or religious trolling on this thread

It's a classic "Smoke and Mirrors" trick.

It's a message to Trump about Global Climate !!!!

Perfect timing.
