  1. The amount of fires that are plaguing our community recently is simply horrifying! And yet even so amidst daily reports of another home and another business being engulfed we still do not even attempt to solve the issue causing all of these fires!
    This issue that I’m reffering to is Cell phone towers. Each and every cell phone tower emits an extremely dangerous and toxic radiation which among the many side effects it induces is setting structures on fire.
    I know what you’re all thinking: Here he goes with his anti-vaxxer agenda again…
    But you should know that you all will be held responsible for all the damage your support to these toxins being stuffed down ours and our children’s throats (Think- Vaccines’ AntiBiotics, cellphone radiation, camera radiation etc.).
    This must stop! We must educate others on the dangers Big Pharma and the Currupt officials are ready to expose us to in exchange for their own benefits!

      • Every camera emits dangerous radiation. Not only that but even the human eye emits a deadly amount of radiation. However unlike radiation from cameras and cellphones there’s nothing us humans could do to stop the radiation from our eyes other than going extinct.
        Regarding cellphones or pretty much every single electronic device (INCLUDING CARS, CORDED LANDLINE PHONES, COMPUTERS etc.) the rule with them is, if it’s working its producing radiation.

        • I think you should go live in the desert with Bedouins if you want to steer clear of all this radiation. I think that clearly Hashem is sending us a message with all these fires. And every person must make their own personal cheshbon hanefesh of what that message is, and what they should be fixing up.

      • they only cause fires if you don’t paint your roof blue. it’s why in E”Y you never see fires starting at any of the kevrei tzadikim.

  2. Interesting. I always learned that according to the gemara (I’d appreciate if someone posted the source because I’m a woman who doesn’t learn gemara), fires are caused by chillul Shabbos. I didn’t think this is an issue in Lakewood, but perhaps all these fires are a message from Hashem to be mechazek in shemiras Shabbos.

  3. Lakewood Yid.
    This had nothing to do with cell towers. That is ridiculous.
    This fire, like many others, seems to have been caused by lithium iron batteries.
    It caused a few of the recent fires.
    None were caused by radiation from cell towers. Like jeez bro, c’mon.

    Source: Was there

  4. Not saying the gemara is wrong, but we also need to do basic hishtadlus.
    Which in this case, means being exceedingly careful with lithium iron batteries and how/where they are being stored.

  5. @Lakewood Yid, I also heard there are aliens who come in invisible flying saucers and start fires by shooting radiation all over. This is in preparation for the eventual invasion & takeover of the entire Lakewood area. Be careful!! Get your escape spaceship ready!

    • and here I thought that the space lasers were Jewish…I guess this fire proves that they aren’t ours after all?

  6. A great store. Great products and great service. I don’t know who owns the store but whenever I’m there (bought something there last week) there’s always a friendly and helpful person there at the checkout. Wishing the owners much siyatta dishmaya during this challenging time…
