Nonsense. Everybody knows it was the CIA that brought down the WTC.Heavy timbers actually do better in a fire than steel beams do.
Here's a picture of a (I think it was a factory) fire where the steel beams softened enough to droop over some wood beams. The char on the wood protects it from the fire for a while, while the steel loses it's capacity to support itself much sooner. Same thing happened at the World Trade Center.
