I thought I'd compare tenant lists of WTC 7 to the floors reported on fire before collapse, and see if anything came from it.


Salomon Smith Barney (Financial Institution) Floors GRND,1-6,13,18-46
Provident Financial Management (Financial Institution) Floors 7,13
American Express Bank International (Financial Institution) Floors 7,8,13
U.S. Secret Service (USG) Floors 9,10
Standard Chartered Bank (Financial Institution) Floors 10,13,26,27
Securities & Exchange Commission ( USG/Financial Institution) Floors 11,12,13
US Equal Opportunity Commission (USG) Floor 18
NAIC Securities (Insurance) Floor 19
ITT Hartford Insurance Group: Floors 19-21
First State Management Group, Inc (Insurance) Floor 21
Federal Home Loan Bank (Financial Institution) Floor 22
NYC Mayor's Office of Emergency Mgmt (NYC Gov't) Floor 23
IRS Regional Council (USG) Floors 24, 25

From Wikipedia:

At the time of the September 11, 2001 attacks, Salomon Smith Barney was by far the largest tenant in 7 World Trade Center, occupying 1,202,900 sq. ft. (64% of the building) including floors 28–45. Other major tenants included ITT Hartford Insurance Group (122,590 sq ft), American Express Bank International (106,117 sq ft), Standard Chartered Bank (111,398 sq ft), and the Securities and Exchange Commission (106,117 sq ft).Smaller tenants included the Internal Revenue Service Regional Council (90,430 sq ft), and the United States Secret Service (85,343 sq ft). The smallest tenants included the New York City Office of Emergency Management, NAIC Securities, Federal Home Loan Bank, First State Management Group, Inc., Provident Financial Management, and the Immigration and Naturalization Service The Department of Defense (DOD) and Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) shared floor #25 with the IRS. Floors 46–47 were mechanical floors, as well as the bottom 6 floors and part of floor #7.

And which floors were reported on fire? From NIST's June 2004 interim report, "Structural fire and collapse analysis": Floors 6, 7, 8, 11, 12, 21, 30 and a general lumping together of "the 20s and 30's."

So that means that floors dedicated to Salomon Bros (6, 31, "20s & 30s"), Provident (7), Amex Bank (8), the SEC (11 & 12), the NYC Mayor's office of Emergency Mgmnt (23-24), the DoD/CIA & IRS (24, 25), and First State & ITT Hartford Ins. (21) all burned before collapse.

Interestingly, but not conclusively, all the floors with major USG institutions--the IRS, CIA, SEC, and DoD, as well as the NYC emergency Mgmt. bunker, were reported on fire before the collapse.

Posted FYI; have at it.
