    Will fire collapse this building?

    A skyscraper is on fire in China. Our government says that a small fire brought down Trade Tower 7. How long until this building collapses?

    also its owner has to be named Larry Silverstein and he needs to get a lucrative insurance policy a few days before the controlled demolition fire.

    so the answer would be Yes

    I am a mid-west farmer, I make a livin' off the land,
    I ride a John Deere tractor, I'm a liberated man.
    But the rain it hasn't fallen, since the middle of July,
    And if it don't come soon my crops will die.
    The bank man says he likes me, but there's nothin' he can do
    He tells me that he's comin' but the clouds are comin' too.
    He ain't my friend:
    And I'll ride again

    ROTGLMAO!!!!!!!!!!!

    too true! I know of projects that came in at 2x the quoted cost and massively late that were union jobs, but independent jobs working a similar contract at the same time came in below budget and ahead of schedule!!!!

    Doesn't mater if we are talking building airports or resurfacing highways - the story is always the same...

    Please people. Although its the third time in history a building collapses due to fire. The first two times were on the same day ie wtc towers 1 and 2
    Although this defies all the laws of physics and engineering. There is one law that trumps all those obvious facts. and that law is "Theres a first time for everything". and building 7 has set the standard
    so lets please stop doubting the official fire can bring down a modern sky scraper theory.
