SF Bridge Collapses due to fire!

Hey Rosie and the rest of the WTC 7 conspiracy crowd, read this...

From WaPo:
A heavily traveled section of freeway that funnels traffic off the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge collapsed early Sunday after a gasoline tanker truck overturned and erupted into flames, authorities said.

Authorities said the damage could take months to repair, and that it would cause the worst disruption for Bay Area commuters since the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake damaged a section of the Bay Bridge. State transportation officials said 280,000 commuters take the bridge into San Francisco each day.

Flames shot 200 feet in the air and the heat was intense enough to melt part of the freeway and cause the collapse, but the truck's driver walked away from the scene with second-degree burns. No other injuries were reported in the 3:45 a.m. crash.


It appears fire does melt steel and this was only gasoline, in an open area, Not Jet fuel, which has a higher octane rating in an enclosed environment with extra combustibles. Anyone that knows how steel is made and formed already knows that fire melts steel. In theses two cases it was not liquefied, but lost its structural integrity, which is still melting. which is the context Rosie used it in, to mean the fire did not cause WTC 7 to collapse, which it did.

Now to the conspiracy people around 9/11, you could have just asked any fire fighter who has been through the fire academy and they could have told you this already.
