I've been trying to find photos of blown asbestos insulation on the net, but

Why are you asking? Are you scared? Do you think you are going to
die? Well, you probably WILL die. It seems that happens to everyone
sometime in their life. Do you wake up screaming in the middle of the

Steel won't burn at the temperatures reached in a building fire ( though at
higher temps it can and will burn..ever see a cutting torch in action?) but

structural failure in a building on fire. This is why steel beams are
fireproofed..to allow the structure to withstand a serious fire for a longer
period of time.

loose stuff, it is probably cellulose.
