The University of Alaska Fairbanks will host a public presentation on the findings of a four-year study into the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 3, in Schaible Auditorium.

UAF researcher Leroy Hulsey was the study's principal investigator. He will present the findings outlined in his team’s draft report for public comment, which will be released the same day. The release of the draft report will be followed by a six-week public comment period, with a final report scheduled for release later this fall. Hulsey’s study is being funded by the nonprofit organization Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth.

WTC 7 was a 47-story office building that fell nearly seven hours after the collapse of the World Trade Center’s Twin Towers on Sept. 11, 2001. In a 2008 report, the U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology attributed the collapse to office fires in the lower stories of the building.

The presentation is open to the public and will be streamed live at 4 p.m. Alaska time at
