As tragic as the Grenfell Tower fire in London is, it’s odd how the German media dwells on these news. A number of incidents in Bangladesh and Pakistan (such as this one) barely raised a brow whereas the precious lives of Westerners require 24 hour coverage, apparently.
Anyway, I found the worries about the building collapsing due to the fire a little odd. To date the WTC buildings seem to be the only high rise buildings ever to have collapsed from a fire, including one building which wasn’t hit by a fire or ablaze (WTC 7).
Still odd? Even on June 25th the building hasn’t collapsed on its own nor has it been “pulled” in order to preempt its collapse due to the damage created by the blaze.
