    Luxury apartment complex that was under construction is gutted and debris fell onto the freeway.
    Heat was so intense it blew out windows in the building across the street.
    Firefighters suspect arson.

    I was looking at the photos earlier, the fire was so hot it scorched an entire office highrise nearby.

    I heard an interview with a fire fighter that was on the scene. He called it a "career" fire, meaning that you would probably only be at a fire like this once in your career

    Notice how a hot fire melted steel?? According to Rosie O'Donnell and all the other 911 tin hats, fire doesn't melt steel!! :facepalm:

    ...i think youre talking about the scaffolding? notice the set of stairs still in one piece. you cant compare that scaffolding metal to iron. you could bend one of those scaffold sections if you hit it across something hard enough. no comparison to 911 and no building anywhere on earth made of iron ever melted before 911.

    That's the Fox Tower in Century City, which was an entire city built on the once massive 20 Century Fox back lot.

    It's on the right, and the downtown L.A. buildings are in the haze across town in this photo.

    I will only post this because I don't want to open a 911 can of worms because it will never end.

    First off, what you say about buildings is partially true. BECAUSE, steel is blown with a heavy insulation that is required to protect steel from fire for several hours to allow fire departments to put it out, which happens a majority of the times around the world. It was proved that the fuel explosions and impact blew the insulation away and ALL the fires burned out of control including for hours in the other tower that fell that people still insist was demo'd.

    There was a gas truck fire, about 10 years ago, on a California freeway. The over passes happened to be the type with steel beams with a concrete roadway. As the fire raged, the unprotected high grade steel folded like chocolate under it's own weight. Just the heat from the fuel fire brought those bridges down, plain and simple.
