Dubai skyscraper fire on Feb. 20, 2015 at a residential building called the Torch. Despite the fire, the building didn’t collapse.

Another hotel in Dubai that burned but didn’t collapse into its own footprint. This was in 2012.

In contrast, three buildings with minor burns collapsed into a pile of dust in New York on 911. In fact, the buildings were putting out black smoke because they were starved for oxygen.

In the photo below, note that the building is not on fire, it is exploding which is why all you see IS DUST – NOT FIRE.
