I am a retired career firefighter, having served over 20 years on a FD in a medium size Midwest city. During those years, I was on many a fire scene, and yes, even a few high-rise fires.
Also saw some ‘pancake’ collapse structure fires and NONE of those looked like the WTC collapses.
A pancake collapse has the floors falling down on top of each other, looking like a pile of pancakes on a plate, hence the term. A pancake collapse building will fall down in a random, haphazard manner, not free-fall and doesn’t emit a large cloud of pulverized contents hundreds of feet high and blocks long, making it look like a volcano exploded. Neither does a pancake collapse generate enough energy to eject a 20 ton steel beam nearly 400 feet and still have enough energy left over to impale the beam into another building.
Nor does a pancake collapse turn humans into tiny bits of nothing, leaving only bone fragments no bigger than a fingernail. Nor does a pancake collapse evaporate tens of thousands of tons of steel and concrete.
I’ve read some of the NYFD radio transcripts from that day, from a crew working the fires in one of the towers. They radioed Command that the main body of fire was out, leaving only ‘mop-up’ duty. Mop-up is putting our small fires that aren’t really dangerous, but could reignite the structure, so best to extinguish them. They also said they were going to start providing medical care to the victims, which means they inspected the fire floor and determined it was safe enough to provide medical care in place, if the floor had been deemed unsafe, they would have begun moving the victims to a lower level.
Then, their world blew up, killing 343 NYFD firefighters.
Now let’s speak of WTC 7: I’m here to tell you that some of the bunk about WTC 7 put forth is just that, bunk.
One of the lies is that the ‘contents’ fire in WTC 7 brought down the building. That is a bald-face lie. Content fires are just that, the burning of the buildings contents, like furniture, paint, carpet, paper, etc. A fire that puts out very nasty VOC filled smoke, but not near hot enough to warp steel.
As for the claim by ‘Lucky Larry’ that the firefighters were ‘going to bring the building down.’ Fire departments have neither the training, expertise, knowledge nor equipment needed to take down a 47 story skyscraper.
Our training is in fire suppression. extinguish the fire and save enough of the building so it can be remodeled, not demolish the building with HE.
Slowly, the real news behind what happened on 9/11 is coming out, I just pray that the truth is exposed soon, before all these ME wars that are based on the 9/11 lies, turn into WW3.
