The fires resulted from "years of gross negligence and failure to live up to industry standards" and incurred hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages.

Fox is already of course implying that this was because they used solar panels.

Great.  Now we're going to get a flood of conspiracy theories that solar panels are being pushed by <insert shadow organization> to <insert shadow organization goal>.

It's Amazon.  Didn't they recently install suicide booths in their warehouses?

Fox can eat my shorts!

(see what I did there?)

One of the problems of using politics to sell things, whether it is solar and EVs to the left or pillows and monster trucks to the right, is that you get a lot of nonsense rather than reasonable, practical purchasing decisions. Of course this is the new conspicuous consumption. People signal their success AND their political affiliation according to what they buy.

In the long run, it leads to a lot of suspicion about solar, and about pillows and trucks.

So Fox wants to make sure that everyone sees that AMAZON run by that leftist Bezos, had a fire that was linked to something that leftists do, like installing solar panels. The narrative is neat and complete.

That said, I am pretty sure a bad solar installation can cause a fire. It would have to be criminally bad, though. An inverter with a bunch of oily rags piled on top of it will heat up and combust. I don't think of solar power as being dangerous or hazardous.

These solar panels are being pushed by the Rand Corporation to enhance 5G signals so they can interact with the vaccine and make people oblivious to the phony Facebook 2020 vote lock boxes that are hidden away in Kamala Harris' basement.

So some solar panels may have caught fire. Nobody is hurt.

How is this a story?

I guess I need to do one then.

Solar panels are being pushed by the fire department unions so there are more fires, justifying their demands for a major pay hike.

"Live up to" industry standards? Did they mean "meet"? Jfc it's like I'm taking crazy pills.

It implies there are precedented parts of the building. How regularly do they have fires at this warehouse, anyway?

Not quite. They still need to get a giant government subsidy to repair the facility and upgrade the equipment.

A nice add-on would be a state waiver to pay their employees below minimum wage while they "reorganize in the face of this unforeseen disaster".
