    We saw this on the news. It was amazing that they were able to get it controled/out in about an hour! Watching it burn was surreal, in that you could really get a feel for how little of the facades of these buildings are made up of anything real. They appear to be concrete/granite/stone of some sort but last i checked rocks burn burn like that. Looked like paper smoldering and turning to ash.

    I know, it was really weird. I was listening to the radio just as it happened and everyone was talking about parts of the building falling down. I thought it was concrete when I first heard as well but am glad it turned out to be the facade. I didn’t know how little they were made of either.
