Building does not follow “law” of physics as observed on 9/11
October 18, 2013

One child is in critical condition and eight others were hospitalized after a fire erupted inside a 25-story high-rise in West Los Angeles late Friday morning, yet the fire did not cause the building to completely collapse at nearly free-fall speed, unlike 7 World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001.

At least 214 firefighters battled the blaze that erupted in a two-bedroom unit on the 11th floor of the Barrington Plaza, a 386-unit luxury apartment building built in 1961.

The firefighters managed to keep the fire contained near its origin before putting it out after 71 minutes, according to KTLA 5.

A woman found the child with an older man, both unconscious, in a stairwell after the fire.

The cause of the fire is currently unknown as of this writing.

It is known, however, that the fire-damaged building did not follow the “law” of physics as observed on Sept. 11, 2001, in which the 47-story 7 World Trade Center in New York City, also known as Building 7, collapsed at almost free-fall speed.

Building 7 was not hit by an airplane prior to its destruction and suffered minimal fire damage, yet still managed to completely collapse in a similar fashion as an imploded building.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) called the collapse of Building 7 “the first known instance of fire causing the total collapse of a tall building” in history.

Yet as Barrington Plaza still remains standing hours after the fire, it is likely that Building 7 will continue to be the only “known” instance of such an event.
