Very interesting story comming out of South Bend's Underwriters Laboratories.
Report states, fire from jet fuel did not get hot enough to effect WTC steel frame.
We all saw the planes hit the towers.
We watched the smoke and flames rise from the twin towers.
We assumed that the jets were fully fueled for the long flight across the country, and this was the cause of the intense fire in the towers.
I wonder if the scientist figured in the flammable materials in the towers like paper, furniture, carpet and items like these.
These items once burning would add to the overall heat of the fire?
Hmmm, I will have to wait and see if anything comes from this report.

SOUTH BEND -- The laboratory director from a South Bend firm has been fired for attempting to cast doubt on the federal investigation into what caused
the World Trade Center's twin towers to collapse on Sept. 11, 2001.
Kevin R. Ryan was terminated Tuesday from his job at Environmental Health Laboratories Inc., a subsidiary of Underwriters Laboratories Inc., the
consumer-product safety testing giant.
On Nov. 11, Ryan wrote a letter to the National Institute of Standards and Technology -- the agency probing the collapse -- challenging the common
theory that burning jet fuel weakened the steel supports holding up the 110-story skyscrapers.
