On New Year’s Eve, a fire broke out and engulfed a 63-story hotel in the city center of Dubai.

After 20 hours, firefighters were able to extinguish the blaze although some small fires continued to burn. No cause for the fire has yet been determined.

Notice that the intensive fire did not cause the steel frame building to collapse into its own footprint nor for molten metal to pour out the windows.


Dubai hotel turned into a torch.


The aftermath of the fire. Guess what? The steel frame is still there.

In New York on 911, however, the puny fires started in the buildings resulted in a lot of smoke, indicating the fires were smoldering. And then the buildings exploded and fell into their own footprint.

WHERE’S THE FIRE? WHAT FIRE EXPLODES A BUILDING INTO DUST?

And then there’s Building 7 which no plane hit and which had only minor fires burning in it before it collapsed, again into its own footprint, late that afternoon. “Pull it” said Larry Silverstein, the owner of the World Trade Center Complex. Meanwhile a BBC reporter announced WTC 7 had collapsed before it did. How did she know it was going to be pulled?
