Here is chapter 19 in my ongoing series of threads publishing my book Fever Rising. Sorry for the delay in getting to the next chapter, but I was
pretty sick with a cold this week, so let's call it an intermission seeing how we're halfway through the book now. This next chapter deals with the
mysterious explosions and fires tracked by the Jumping Jack Flash Hypothesis
and has quite
a bit of exchanges that took place here at ATS on my Dangerous Gas Theory thread
Here is a link to the last chapter about the loud booms, and at the beginning of that thread, you'll see links to all the other threads in this
series if you'd like to start from the beginning and catch up, or if you missed any of the chapters.
Why Methane is Responsible for the Loud Booms
Chapter 19: The Daily Explosions and Unexplained Fires
On any given day, you can find a hundred mysterious fires listed on the Jumping Jack Flash website, but it was February 25, 2014 that I thought was
quite telling about the arriving times. What times do I reference? A very flammable time because plumes of dangerous gas wafting in the air are
causing random vehicles to ignite into destructive and life-threatening fire. This is the hypothesis we explored in Chapter 3, the Jumping Jack Flash
Each day when Jonny Mnemonic does his updates, he starts off with a spotlight story, one that stands out a little more than the rest. On this
particular day in February, he put the spotlight on a series of vehicle fires in different parts of the world, but that had multiple fires in specific
locations that were just minutes apart. Some of the events materialized in the New York City area. For instance, two vehicle fires erupted in
Manhattan (which is a coastal area) within five minutes of each other. One was a pick up truck and the other was a car. Police said they believed that
the fires were incendiary in nature.
Car fires investigated
From 1350kman.com, Feb. 25, 2014
Riley County Police and Manhattan Fire Department investigators are looking into suspicious fires reported early Tuesday morning.
At approximately 2:10 AM, the two departments responded to a complaint of fire in the 800 block of Moro Street in Manhattan. When emergency crew
arrived on scene they found a vehicle on fire.
Approximately 5 minutes later another report of fire was received and officers responded to a stairwell at an apartment complex located at 801 Moro
Street. Within the next 45 minutes police and fire officials received a complaint of an additional fire in the 800 block of Laramie where another
vehicle had been ignited.
There were no injuries reported.
Police and Fire Investigators began an investigation into the suspicious fires and have determined that there was a high probability that they were
incendiary in nature. This investigation is ongoing.
There were other recent car fires in the New York area that authorities believed were suspicious, but Jonny disagreed. He said that more of these
gas-caused fires will appear suspicious and arson will get the blame. He explained it on his website.

Much like the 3 boats that burned up in two separate incidents within 3 minutes in Washington DC, as mentioned in the 2014-02-11 update. And fires
caused by methane and/or hydrogen sulfide will of course be incendiary in nature; they're both flammable gases. The wee hours are when the atmosphere
cools and contracts, which will push any hydrogen sulfide and/or methane floating in the air above closer to the ground. Also note the two trucks that
burst into flame on bridges in the NYC area on this same day. Could this have been arson? Anything is possible, but the fact that they were parked and
that the fires may have been 'incendiary in nature' doesn't indicate arson, and I don't see them mentioning having anything substantive in terms
of evidence that would indicate arson...
If the United Kingdom hasn’t had enough problems over the past two winters, they can add mysterious car fires to the sinkholes, floods, winds,
waves, fireballs, etc. Two cars erupted into flames just fifteen minutes apart in the wee hours again in Wrexham.

Two car fires which took place within 15 minutes of each other are being treated as arson.
North Wales Police said both fires were started deliberately but added they are not being treated as linked.
Retired couple Michael and Heather Platt’s Citroen Xsara was the first car torched, sparking fears about the safety of their neighbours on their
street of semi-detached properties.
“We were both asleep and I just heard a big swoosh sound and then a bang. I looked outside the window and said ‘Oh my God, my car is on
“We ran downstairs, rang the fire brigade and then I grabbed a housepipe, but it just kept burning.
Nicola Birchall’s Vauxhall Astra was the second vehicle torched on Ash Grove, with the full tank of petrol she had just put in causing the blaze to
rage for over an hour.
Mrs Birchall, 43, who works at Dodds Lane Student Centre, said a number of items - including her pupil’s school work - had been lost in the fire.
“I was lying in bed and just heard a pop which sounded like an explosion”, she said.
Naturally, Jonny disagreed again that these were caused by an arsonist. Here is his response.

Don't see them mentioning any evidence of arson here either, just an assumption. And this is what we should expect to see as the number, size and
concentration of hydrogen sulfide and methane plumes in the atmosphere continue to increase. Also note the passenger bus that burst into flame between
Wrexham and Penley on this same day...
There were also two cars that ignited nearby to each other and only minutes apart in the late night hours on Feb. 25 in Hazleton, Pennsylvania. The
same night saw a box truck burst into flames while driving across the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge that connects Staten Island with Brooklyn. The driver
and passenger both escaped without injury while it took the fire crews over an hour to put out the fire. Another truck also burst into flame in the
New York City area going over a bridge. This time it was the George Washington Bridge near Fort Lee, NJ. Here are links to those two fires.
