9:59 South Wall Fire Ejections: Visual evidence which demonstrates that "something" big happened to the south wall of WTC1 at 9:59, just as WTC2 was collapsing. The fire ejections can be seen in the clips:
We can see the flair-up in the three photos below taken moments apart:
The possibility that the fire erupts aligned with where two out-of order express elevators were located is discussed here
The relation of this fire ejection to the inward bowing seen minutes later is discussed here
NIST mentions the fire ejections briefly:
NCSTAR1-5, Page 15: "Very shortly after the collapse began, fire and smoke were pushed out of the south face of WTC 1, probably due to a pressure pulse transmitted to WTC 1 from the collapsing tower. The most prominent effect was on the 98th floor where flames were pushed out of windows along the west side of the face."
Probably? There is smoke coming from the south face around this region and we can see no movement due to the collapsing tower within the smoke. Any wind pulse transmitted from WTC2 to WTC1 would be visible within movement of the veil of smoke covering the south wall of WTC2.
