75-Storey Building Catches Fire in Dubai But Fails to Collapse in Its Own Footprint!

Weren’t we were taught on 9/11 that when a steel-frame office building catches fire, the fire will burn hot enough to melt steel girders? And when that happens, will not the building collapse neatly into its own footprint? Isn’t that the only likely result, and wasn’t that pretty much the essence of the NIST report on the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7?

So how in the heck do we explain what happened Wednesday in Dubai where the 75-story Sulafa Tower caught fire and burned for three hours–but yet did not collapse? That’s a tough one. I really can’t figure it out!
