From what I have seen, the WTC destruction seems to be the first case of a high-rise building collapsing due to fire ever (unless someone can provide evidence disproving this statement).

I thought you meant restrained as in, resistance to expansion. I merely pointed out that if you were to graph heat along the x axis, and the expansion along the y axis, it wouldn't be a straight line, let alone an exponential or power series. It would be logarithmic, that is, flattens out at heat increases to some asymptote at some number y1.
