    How does a construction burn all that steel and concrete. Foul play

      Not necessarily, if there is other material around like plastic tarp, or other composite, all it takes is one weld spark

    Man you all are delusional, What happened was, the roof sheeting insulation caught fire when a contractor started their part in the construction. Thing happen, and yes luckily no one got injured.
