A skyscraper in Hong Kong which was under construction has gone up in flames. Two people were reported injured and taken to hospital. The fire may have started on the bamboo scaffolding on the outside of the building, according to local media. But there has been no official confirmation of the cause. However, once again, no mention of the fact the building remained standing despite incredible fire damage leaving WTC Building 7 the only tall building 'ever' to have collapsed by fire!
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) conducted an extensive three-year scientific and technical investigation of the Sept. 11, 2001, collapse of the 47-story World Trade Center building 7 (WTC 7) in New York City. This video describes the results of this study, which concluded that fires on multiple floors in WTC 7--which were uncontrolled but otherwise similar to fires experienced in other tall buildings--caused an extraordinary event. The heating of floor beams and girders caused a critical support column to fail, initiating a fire-induced progressive collapse that brought the building down. In 2016, Peter Ketcham, a former employee of the National Institute of Standards and Technology, began looking into the reports his agency had released on the collapse of the WTC. What he found shook him to the core.
In August 2016, Peter Michael Ketcham, a former employee of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), began looking into the reports his agency had released years earlier on the collapse of the World Trade Center. What he found shook him to the core. In this poignant half-hour interview, Peter Michael Ketcham tells his story of discovering that the organization where he had worked for 14 years had deliberately suppressed the truth about the most pivotal event of the 21st century. Through his willingness to look openly at what he failed to see in front of him for 15 years, Mr Ketcham inspires us to believe that we can all muster the courage to confront the truth — and, in so doing, finally heal the wounds of 9/11.
