Over an hour before the WTC 7 demolition, at approximately 4:13 pm on September 11th, 2001 CNN's Aaron Brown reports -

"Building 7, in the WTC complex, is on fire and has either collapsed, or is collapsing..."

CNN's Live screen caption for this segment:

'Building 7 At World Trade CTR. On Fire, May Collapse'

He goes on:

".... There were the two Towers; but then there are a number of support buildings around it: retail spaces, restaurants, office space, garages... the trains come in from New Jersey bringing commuters, taking commuters back, coming into the Complex that is the World Trade Center... and now we are told that there's a fire there, and that building may collapse as well, as you can see."
