Background Attack Aftermath Evidence Misinformation Analysis Memorial

6 World Trade Center

The September 11th Attack

WTC 6 was an eight-story building that stood directly northeast of the the North Tower (WTC 1). Its tenants consistent almost entirely of federal government agencies. It housed the offices of 760 employees of the U.S. Customs service.

Evacuation

800 workers were evacuated from WTC 6 within 12 minutes of the first plane striking the North Tower. That impact caused debris to rain down on the roof of Building 6, which was adjacent to the impacted wall of the tower. 1

Holes

WTC 6 was severely damaged on September 11 with two holes that extend the height of the building. The photo, from directly overhead WTC 6 on September 23, shows a large crater in the center of the building, and a smaller one in the southeast end (bottom of photo). The holes had remarkably clean profiles, with the same region punched out of each floor. The shapes of the holes may provide clues about the destruction of the North Tower.

Fires

This photograph shows most of Building 6 (above) and part of Building 5 (below). Building 6 appears to have experienced severe fires like Building 5.

It appears that fires may have raged through WTC 6. The FEMA Report, which has extensive discussion about fires in WTC 5, is silent on fires in WTC 6. From the appearance of the remains of WTC 6, it probably had fires similar in severity to those in WTC 5. Despite the massive structural damage shown by the holes, and fires probably more severe than those in WTC 1, 2, and 7, WTC 6 did not collapse.

Destruction

WTC 6 was demolished as part of the clean-up of Ground Zero. FEMA, the agency charged with investigating the disaster, did not collect any data on this building.
