Funny how the flames were hot enough to melt tempered steel but not hot enough to incinerate DNA ( and a passport among other things)

And the fire was apparently so hot that it made the black boxes from the planes just disappear! The very first time in history that happened. Man, (scratches his head) there sure were alot of firsts that day.

surely they can not expect to match DNA to all the victims. surely on at least the immediate floors the temperature would destroy or a least course the DNA to lose its structure.
Im gonna try and find some info on the temperature DNA is destroyed. Although im sure iv read that DNA can not be sampled from the ashes of a cremation.
