Depending on how your world comes to an end, this recent parking garage fire (over 1,000 cars destroyed, no one seriously injured) is interesting from terrain making/scenery point of view. Note how one of the floors collapsed onto the floor below it.

Yeah, I can see the top of that building from our bedroom window, we didn't even know about the fire until we saw the new report :/

It looks like the surface melted in places and dripped through the steel reinforcement rods!

Wow. High heat sure does weird things to concrete. Those supports are going to be very brittle.

That would make an outstanding game board!

How the heck did the fire happen? Exploding tanker truck? It's not like the structure is flammable.

Terminator Salvation got a lot of the whitening effect of high heat correctly.

My mates car was parked there that night (still is!) He was there with his family watching the horse show. Turns out it started in a single old Land Rover and just spread rapidly from car to car.

Old Mongo almost got it right. He probably could have use more off-whites, tans and dirty greens.
