That also could have happened at WTC 7 as well to give the same false impression. If WTC 7 also had sub-level parking as well.

Its just too bad the the EPA recoverd all the fuel in the WTC 7 ground floor tanks.
There were natural gas generators available at the time. If they were diesel, they simply use conversion kits. In fact, I have a whole house natural gas generator. It is connected to the natural gas line on the outside at the house, which feeds my house for natural gas appliances. If there is a fire in my house, the fire department shuts off the natural gas at the outside main feeding my area.
Whats amazing is that there are so many people that dismiss these first hand accounts..... as if to say even though you were INSIDE the building and were there as the attacks happened...your wrong. The nist people and the fema people and the feds and the cia are more correct then you.
Even though you were actually there and heard all these explosions with your own ears.

That is because the Fire inspectors would not allow large natural gas
lines inside of the buildings - for example the kitchen for WINDOWS
ON THE WORLD restuarant (floor 106/107 Tower 1) was in the basement
for that reason. Diesel fuel has a relatively high flash point (130 F)
and is difficult to ignite.
No gas lines are run inside with natural gas generators. They are tied into the gas line before the meter outside of the building. No lines need to be run inside if a boiler or some other source is used for heating. The gas line stops out the building. Same with diesel with tanks normally buried as are lines for aestheic purposes.
The graphics below illustrate elevator shaft continuity on and below the aircraft impact zones. The colored areas represent shafts, not necessarily individual elevator cars. The blue area in the floor plans below indicates the #50 freight elevator shaft, which is continuous from the impact zones to the lowest basement level, B6. In the north tower, with elevator operator Arturo Griffith and carpenter Marlene Cruz aboard, the #50 elevator was hit by a blast, dropped several floors, and stopped below the B1 landing. A large fireball came through the shaft just after Griffith and Cruz were pulled from smoky elevator.
The yellow area indicates the large #6 and #7 elevators, which led to Windows on the World in the north tower (WTC 1) and to the observation deck in the south tower (WTC 2). This shaft is continuous from the impact zones to sublevel B4, where several people within the core area were injured by the jet fuel blast, and where building engineer Edward McCabe said the blast came "about 30 seconds" after he felt the building shift.
