  • I iz also makin a list. U on it pal.
People were told in case of fire to stay in their apartments.  UNsanity.  Reminds me of 9/11, the Twin Towers, when building management "authorities" told people to stay in the building.  No f'g way.

Sounds like a real Mel Brooks kind of lunacy...

Let me put on my tin foil hat for just a second and ask, how is it this building was a raging inferno all night and into the next day but remains standing?  I thought we were told the WTC collapsed because the heat of the burning jet fuel softened the steel structural beams enough that they could suddenly no longer support the weight of the building.

I'm not an engineer, but I would guess jet fuel has a higher BTU value (burns hotter) than anything you'd find in that complex.

It could be due to the fact that most of the actual spreading fire was on the outside of the building.   Had the building not been remodeled last year,  it would have probably been a minor fire.   The environmentally friendly newly installed building cladding seems to be very flammable and had a chimney effect to boot.    Sounds like the panels were made of cheap plastic,  which doesn't seem like a good idea for siding a high rise.   Since the building was built in 1974,  I am guessing the exterior was plain ugly concrete before like most public housing of the era.
