Unlikeliness of collapse


Windsor Building, Madrid

Windsor Building, Madrid

No steel-framed high-rise has ever collapsed from fire, ever ever ever. And there have been fires far worse than those in the World Trade Center:

  • Philadelphia: One Meridian Plaza, a 38-floor skyscraper in Philadelphia, suffered a fire on February 23, 1991, that raged for 18 solid hours, totally gutting eight floors. No collapse.

  • Los Angeles: The First Interstate Bank Building, a 62-story skyscraper in Los Angeles, suffered a horrendous fire in May 1988. Sixty four fire companies battled the blaze, which lasted for 3 1/2 hours and gutted four and a half floors. No damage to the main structural columns, no collapse.

  • New York: 1 New York Plaza is a 50-story office tower less than a mile from the World Trade Center site that suffered a severe fire and explosion in August of 1970. The fire burned for more than six hours. No collapse.

  • Caracas: The tallest skyscraper in Caracas, Venezuela, burned for more than 17 hours over 26 floors in October 2004. No collapse.

  • Madrid: The Windsor Building in Madrid, Spain, on February 12, 2005, was engulfed in an enormous fire for the better part of a day. It suffered a partial collapse. Note that this is not a true steel-framed high-rise, but had a steel-reinforced concrete frame. Some claim that its partial collapse supports the official WTC story, while others maintain that it further undermines it, showing that even a flimsier building, when it collapses, does so gradually and partially, not totally and rapidly like the WTC.

I've said it before, I'll say it again: ain't no fire brought down the World Trade Center towers or Building 7. No way no how.

Bottom line, me, I give it:
