Several articles mentioned

that cell phones quit working. Is this also hype or is there some cause for it. None of the articles explained how a fireball would interfere with cell phone operation. I could understand that they would quit working if a nuke went off at high altitude (EMP), but have never heard that a fireball produced an EMP.
