Steve Spak’s film of WTC7 prior to its collapse has been cited in the comments here as evidence the building was blazing “out of control” prior to collapse. Given this it seems appropriate to give this video a place here, to allow people to appreciate this crucial piece of evidence, and decide for themselves if this claim is true.
Prior to 9/11 no steel frame high rise building had ever collapsed completely as a result of fire. NIST’s fire-induced collapse theory for WTC 1, 2 and 7 therefore describes a unique event that needs to be carefully examined.
Please note neither the building seen dimly blazing in the distance at one point nor the shorter building seen in the foreground latin the video are WTC7. WTC7 is the taller reddish building with fires visible on two floors.
For comparison here is another high rise buildings on fire – it did not collapse as a result.
