Leslie Robertson, the Chief Structural Engineer for the Twin Towers, said: "As of 21
days after the attack, the fires were still burning and molten steel was still running"
(Williams, 2001). Knight-Ridder journalist Jennifer Lin, discussing Joe "Toolie" O'Toole,
a Bronx firefighter who worked for many months on the rescue and clean-up efforts, wrote:
"Underground fires raged for months. O'Toole remembers in February seeing a crane lift a
steel beam vertically from deep within the catacombs of Ground Zero. 'It was dripping from
the molten steel," he said'" (Lin, 2002).
Professor Allison Geyh (2001) of Johns Hopkins, who was part of a team of public health
investigators who visited the site shortly after 9/11, wrote: "In some pockets now being
uncovered they are finding molten steel". Dr. Keith Eaton, who somewhat later toured the
site with an engineer, said that he was shown slides of "molten metal, which was still red
hot weeks after the event"
-Peter Tully, president of Tully Construction, and Mark Loizeaux, president of Controlled Demolition, Incorporated both reported molten steel. Tully said that he saw pools of "literally molten steel" at the site. Loizeaux said that several weeks after 9/11, when the rubble was being removed, "hot spots of molten steel" were found "at the bottoms of the elevator shafts of the main towers, down seven [basement]levels" (both statements quoted in Bollyn, 2004).
Greg Fuchek, vice president of sales for LinksPoint, Inc.-added that "sometimes when a
worker would pull a steel beam from the wreckage, the end of the beam would be dripping
molten steel" (Walsh, 2002).
A review of of the documentary Collateral Damage in the New York Post describes firemen at Ground Zero recalling "heat so intense they encountered rivers of molten steel."
A transcription of an audio interview of Ground Zero chaplain Herb Trimpe contains the following passage: "I talked to many contractors and they said they actually saw molten metal trapped, beams had just totally had been melted because of the heat. So this was the kind of heat that was going on when those airplanes hit the upper floors. It was just demolishing heat."
A publication by the National Environmental Health Association quotes Ron Burger, a public health advisor at the National Center for Environmental Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, who arrived at Ground Zero on the evening of September 12th. Burger stated: "Feeling the heat, seeing the molten steel, the layers upon layers of ash, like lava, it reminded me of Mt. St. Helens"
