There was molten steel in the debris of 911.
Is it from the burning jet fuel? No, because:
Fact 1: Construction-grade steel melts at 2795°F. (Source)
Fact 2: The maximum temperature that can be generated from burning jet fuel, under ideal conditions, is 1796°F, and the “open air burning” temperature of jet fuel (as in the 911 towers) is much lower, only 500-599°F. (Source)
Yet, there was molten steel in the 911 debris . . .
“You’d get down below and you’d see molten steel — molten steel! — running down the channel rails. Like you’re in a foundry… like lava… from a volcano.” – FDNY Captain Ruvolo (Source)
“As of 21 days after the attack, the fires were still burning and molten steel was still running. ” – Leslie Robertson, SEAU News Structural Engineers Association of Utah 2001-10-01, (Source)

Underground fires raged for months. O’Toole remembers in February seeing a crane lift a steel beam vertically from deep within the catacombs of Ground Zero. “It was dripping from the molten steel,” he said.
“It was reported to me… Molten steel was encountered primarily during excavation of debris around the South Tower… There are both video tape and still photos of the molten steel being “dipped” out by the buckets of excavators…” Mark Loizeaux, President Controlled Demolition Inc.
“What you had were large columns of steel that were just stuck into massive amounts of molten steel and other metals…” “It looked like a massive, molten mess that had been fused together…” – Interim Bryan Fire Department Chief Mike Donoho
As of 21 days after the attack, the fires were still burning and molten steel was still running. James M.Williams, President Structural Engineers Association of Utah
With no special protective gear, he worked within a few feet of still burning fires, “like a volcano,” hot enough that molten steel could be seen dripping down. “My boots melted every night,” he recalled. “You just didn’t stand in one place too long.” – Union ironworker Tom Hickey
Johns Hopkins Public Health Magazine: “In some pockets now being uncovered, they are finding molten steel.” Alison Geyh, PhD.
“Eddie and I walked down into the depths of the South Tower,… which was the first to collapse. Large front end loaders were engaged in their task… The average temp. beneath the rubble is said to be 1500 F. so that when steel is brought up it is molten and takes two or three days to cool down.”
So, how can a falling building on 911 create red-hot molten metal that is so hot it glows for days afterwards–as documented here:
