CCP Oveur wakens from a deep sleep, dreaming of Exotic Dancers and Quafe. What could that noise have been? The door? A series of quick bangs confirms his theory as he rolls out of bed, knocking several cans of beer off his nightstand in the process. At the door is CCP John Proctor - his expression is grim. "It's the server!" he says.
"What server?" Oveur replies, rubbing the sleep from his eyes. A piercing look from John answers his question.
"Where's Prism X?" he asks, glancing behind John for anyone else in the hallway.
"He...didn't make it." John's lower lip quivers noticeably. "Get everyone."

A dozen or so of them, with Oveur, Wrangler, and John Proctor leading make a mad dash to an official CCP Van and rush over to the server site.
As the CCPMobile reaches the server building, they can already see the smoke coming out of the top floor - the Jita floor. They rush up the stairs, Oveur having several minor heart attacks in the process, to finally reach the room where the largest most terrifying server is held. Opening the hatch, they see the core of the server glowing white hot, almost convulsing in it's gyroscopicly-stabilized mount. A pool of blood and a body can be seen behind it, both being pulled ominiously toward the computational abomination.

John Proctor shouts over all the noise, "It's too late! There's nothing more I can do!" Oveur, snapping out of his cardiac-infarction haze, give him a single order - "Execute Code Omega." A grim look comes over CCP John Proctor as he nods in understanding. Quickly typing a code into the massive hatch at the top of the staircase, the opening swings shut with the whir of heavy pneumatic. Turning to Oveur and the others, John Proctor utters one last phrase, his hand hovering over an ominous red button - "Pray." Wrangler begins to cry.

Mashing the button with all the force John's arm can muster, a terrible roar is heard throughout the entire building. A massive bay opens up from the roof of the server warehouse, at it's center is a conical object with a glowing, white-hot core. The Jita server. With a frantic cry to his fellow CCPers John Proctor yells, "Get down, now!" as flames sprout from the base of the rocket.
Moving slowly at first, the rocket wobbles unsteadily in it's supports and then suddenly shoots off into the dark Icelandic sky. Higher and higher it moves until it is almost out of sight. And then, the detonation.

A blinding flash of red, then white light illuminates the sky like a nuclear explosion, like the sun, like the face of God himself. The sonic boom from the detonation - almost like a hellish scream - flattens many nearby buildings, cars, and poor innocents unfortunate enough to have been outside. With a final, implosion the display dies down, and black blood begins to rain from the sky.

CCP John Proctor turns to the others. "It's...it's over. Jita...the seal was broken. I had...no choice..." weariness darkens his eyes as he steadies himself against a scantily-clad Eris and lights a cigarette.
Oveur looks up into the sky, the demonic wisps of the maelstrom still lingering high up in the stratosphere. There were tears in his eyes. "If only they just avoided Jita. If only..."

Only you can prevent Jita Fires. Only you, pod pilots.

Best Jita story... ever. (Granted, the competition is somewhat on the lame side, but that doesn't diminish this one).

Hmmm...this has potential. Twisted Evil

Also, should this have happened in London the cost of life would have been far greater.
