Firefighters rushed to the scene of a blaze at the Nordstrom store in downtown Salt Lake City’s City Creek Center Mall Wednesday morning.
Salt Lake City Fire Department spokesman Jasen Asay said flames and smoke were pouring out of an exhaust stack on the store’s roof when crews arrived about 7 a.m.
First the Great And Spacious Conference center and now the Great And Spacious Mall.
Satan sure is a fire bug.
Mormons keep saying that no tithing was used to build the mall. I might start believing that now because if tithing money had been used - they would have had fire protection!
Things brings up a comedy piece posted on the MC by Baura back in April that I'll repost here:
The LDS Conference Center in Salt Lake City suffered from a self-abuse problem earlier this week.
The Conference Center contains a "little factory" to manufacture electrical power if it is needed at the appropriate time. This was put there by the creator of the Conference Center with wisdom in preparing for a possible power outage. This wise design was intended to be used only with a congregation in the center that has been properly invited by those in authority, and only during a power outage. However this "little factory" was stimulated into production BEFORE it was appropriate and it was done in an inappropriate way.
The Conference Center suffered from this inappropriate and unwise stimulation of it's "little factory" when high-energy excitement (that should have been kept in it's place by singing a hymn) was allowed to run rampant through the system.
The excess of energy that resulted by the unwise stimulation triggered fluids to flow in an inappropriate way which was contrary to the design of the creator of the conference center. The damage caused has reached half a million dollars--a stark and somber warning against the dangers of self abuse.
Authorities are considering changes to avoid this problem in the future. One plan calls for excess insulation around the offending electrodes. If that is not sufficient to eliminate the problem, grounding one of the electrodes to a bed post might be necessary.
