Very roughly, in the 50 years since 1968 I have found 38 structurally 
significant fires in tall buildings.

By structurally significant I mean where by my estimation there was 
significant insult to the structural parts of the building from fire - 
roughly, a large fire over much of several floors and which lasted 
uncontrolled for an hour or more, and eg where the fire wasn't mostly on 
the outside of the building.

Please don't regard these lists as in any way complete or authoritative 
- it was just a quick data grab, back-of-the-envelope stuff. I surely 
missed out, or got the structural material, insult or outcome wrong, on 
one or two or more cases due to the rushed nature of the enquiry. Cases, 
especially from Russia and China, were excluded because data was lacking 
or censored.

I'd guesstimate I included over 50% of all such fires worldwide, with 
their details about 70% correct. Corrections welcome, though I don't 
know that I'd do anything with them other than read them.

In 8 of these cases the main structural material of the building was 
steel. These are:

First Interstate Tower     1988   steel             [1]
1 World Trade Center       2001   steel             total collapse
2 World Trade Center       2001   steel             total collapse
7 World Trade Center       2001   steel             total collapse
90 West Street             2001   steel             [2]
Beijing TV Cultural Center 2009   steel             [3]
Plasco Building            2017   steel             total collapse
Wilton Paes de Almeida     2018   steel             total collapse

The remaining 30 fires were in reinforced concrete buildings. I have 
marked some composite buildings where the main load-bearing structure is 
concrete as rc. Where parts of the building were supported by reinforced 
concrete and distinct other parts were supported by steel I have marked 
then rc/steel.

helped maintain structural integrity in fire." [*]

[2] Extensive use of terracotta is said to have helped prevent collapse

[3] Chinese reticence and/or censorship makes available data uncertain

I don't want you to accept the NIST report. I don't think I'd accept it 
myself. But I know very little about WTC7, especially compared to 1+2.
