According to the official statement, on 9/11 the fires were so hot from each plane's jet fuel that the steel construction melted and the floors gave-way, giving life to the "pancake theory". This would mean that the fires had to be at or above 1535ºC (2795ºF), which is the melting point of steel. The max temperature of hydrocarbon fires burning in the atmosphere without pressurization or pre-heating (premixed fuel and air [a blue flame]) is nearly half that at approximately 825ºC (1517ºF).
FEMA's own final report on the destruction of the towers stated that, "The heat produced by burning jet fuel does not by itself appear to have been sufficient to initiate the structural collapse."
Battalion Seven Chief, Orio J. Palmer, as recorded on the firefighter radio transmissions that were later confiscated and hushed under orders of National Security, relayed that they had "two isolated pockets of fire" in the South Tower, and they "should be able to knock it down with two lines."
The dark smoke that was billowing from the structures is a tell-tale sign that the fires were suffocating, and not raging like the official account would like us to believe. There are no flames shooting up the sides of the towers, and none pouring out the windows of the floors above. Furthermore, there are pictures of people standing in the gaping hole left allegedly by Flight 11, holding onto the bent exterior columns looking down the side of the building - proving the heat couldn't have been that intense.
