Cell Tower Fire on Apartment Building Rooftop Possibly Caused By Electrical Malfunction

By B.N. Frank

Cell towers can and do catch fire. Another one happened yesterday on a rooftop in Brooklyn, New York.

Fire on Rooftop With Cell Antennas in Brooklyn New York

A fire broke out on the roof of a Brooklyn New York apartment building reportedly possibly caused by an electrical malfunction of a cell tower on the roof of the building.

Local news reports state that multiple firetrucks and dozens of firefighters arrived at the scene and quickly bring the fire under control. There were no injuries reported.

Anash.org reports that “Sunday evening, Crown Heights residents were alarmed to see heavy black smoke pouring from the rooftop of an apartment building on Empire between Kingston and Brooklyn.” See images of the Brooklyn fire and watch their video at https://anash.org/fire-extinguished-on-roof-of-crown-heights-apartment-building/

Cell towers and wireless antennas pose fire risks.

More transmitting cell antennas in a community will increase the fire danger/risk. 5G/4G wireless facilities bring industrial equipment with electrical equipment into residential neighborhoods. Poles loaded with electrical equipment bring fire risks. Yet, telecom and the power companies are largely unregulated with minimal oversight in regards to fire risk. (More 5G Risks at EHT’s Facts about 5G.)

Many fires have been started by cell antennas and from equipment on utility poles, some at schools. Most notably, Malibu Canyon Fire started as the result of three telecoms overloading a utility pole and “Southern California Edison Co. agreed Monday to pay $37 million to resolve concerns about three overloaded utility poles that sparked the 2007 Malibu Canyon fire, a settlement that would bring the total payout for the destructive fire to more than $60 million.” Stay updated with the latest news by signing up for Environmental Health Trust’s newsletter.

In addition to fire risk, 5G will increase ambient levels of wireless radiofrequency radiation. Peer-reviewed research has demonstrated a myriad of adverse effects from wireless radiofrequency radiation including increased brain cancer, DNA damage, oxidative stress, immune dysfunction, altered brain development, damaged reproduction, sleep changes, hyperactivity, and memory damage.

Cell Antenna Installations Can Cause Fires.

For many years, American firefighter unions have opposed cell towers and antennas being installed at their stations due to health and safety risks. Go figure.

American opposition to 4G and 5G cell towers and antennas near homes continues to increase due to concerns about reduced property value (see 1, 2, 3), public safety (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6), health (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8), cybersecurity and environmental risks. Some have even referred to 5G deployment as a form of “environmental racism”.

Telecom experts, The Irregulators, have proven that Americans have already paid to have safer access to high-speed internet via fiber optics (see also 1, 2, 3, 4). The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is supposed to protect the public from the telecom industry. Unfortunately the agency has repeatedly revealed itself to be a corrupt and “captured” agency (see 1, 2). This includes amending the “OTARD Rule” so that private property owners may install 5G and WiFi antennas to broadcast into neighborhoods without obtaining a permit or notifying anybody. Got a fire extinguisher?
