Venkatesh Kodur, MSU professor of civil and environmental engineering and a globally recognized expert on structure fires, can speak to the fire at Notre Dame.

Among the topics Kodur can address:

*Why didn't firefighters learn not to rush into a burning high-rise after the tragedy of 911 in New York?

*One of the reasons the building didn't collapse is it caught on fire one half at a time, saving the structure from collapsing and causing more tragedy.

Kodur can be reached at (517) 353-9813, cell (517) 648-5698 or kodur@egr.msu.edu.
