How was the damage inside the towers calculated? Where did they get their figures?

One thing the conspiracy clowns leave off is fact the WTC 7 was smashed by debris from collapse of WTC 1
which left a 20 story gash in the south/southwest facades of WTC 7, the collapse also smashed the
water mains in the area and damaged the internal plumbing for the sprinklers/standpipes - no water
for FDNY to fight the fires.
As for the NIST report - Did you ACTUALLY READ IT ? Or like the rest of the truther clown posse simply
denounce it because does not fit their pre conceived conspiracy fantasy
I ask again, how do they come up with their estimates regarding what occurred inside the towers?
That the fires within the tower were so out of control, the collapse of the building would have occurred regardless.
As the North Tower collapsed on September 11, 2001, heavy debris hit 7 World Trade Center, damaging the south face of the building and starting fires that continued to burn throughout the afternoon. The collapse also caused damage to the southwest corner between Floors 7 and 17 and on the south face between Floor 44 and the roof; other possible structural damage included a large vertical gash near the center of the south face between Floors 24 and 41
During the afternoon, fire was also seen on floors 6–10, 13–14, 19–22, and 29–30. In particular, the fires on floors 7 through 9 and 11 through 13 continued to burn out of control during the afternoon
