Opposite of 9/11: 2 Buildings in 48 Hours Engulfed in Flames, Neither Collapse into Own Footprint

London’s Grenfell Tower burned for over 24 hours, a massive and deadly blaze so intense, it swiftly charred nearly the entire 1,000-unit structure — consuming newly-installed aluminum outer panels and virtually anything in its path — leaving at least 17 dead, injuring scores more, and igniting a political firestorm in the process.

But the 24-story building — its apartments gutted beyond repair — did not crumble into its own footprint.

It’s still standing.

In fact, according to several reports from the fire brigade on scene, several small fires inside Grenfell Tower remained smoldering well into today — the residential building’s charred sarcophagus now being investigated to determine cause — meaning, firefighters adhering to stringent safety precautions are perusing the severely crippled structure.

And it still hasn’t collapsed — nor should it have — because that would be nearly unprecedented. Nearly.

That the silhouette of Grenfell Tower still graces the skyline above its upscale neighborhood demands a telling comparison to a structure — World Trade Center Tower 7 — which free fell into its own footprint, as putative experts claimed in conclusion of investigations into the attacks of September 11, 2001.

Building 7, or WTC 7, has featured prominently in so-called conspiracy theories pertaining to the attacks as it stands — pardon the pun — one of the only steel-framed, concrete structures to have supposedly succumbed to office fires and collapsed straight to the ground, disintegrating into a pile of rubble.

Of course, why and how Building 7 collapsed, at all, remains a subject fraught with disputation — the 47-floor office complex experienced several smaller fires, as it sat in the shadow of the twin towers, which had taken direct hits from two commercial airlines flown by terrorists intent on bringing the buildings down.
