Structural engineer Matthys Levy, one of several so called "expert" opinions cited in the "History Channel" documentary "9/11 Conspiracies: Fact Or Fiction", makes the following claim regarding WTC building 7, during the programs 2nd hour.

Matthys Levy: "The initial fires started around 9:30 in the morning."

Fires in WTC 7 are said to have been caused by debris from the collapsing WTC tower 1, which did not fall until 10:28am.

Levy, was chairman for Weidlinger Associates, one of several firms recruited after 9/11, by Silverstein Properties to assist in its $7 billion WTC insurance claim.
