23. Fire
By far not all witnesses reported seeing the fire but quite a few did.
Here you are:


Charles Sturtz, 53, who lives just over the hillside from the crash site, said a fireball 200 feet high shot up over the hill. He got to the crash scene even before the firefighters.

A mushroom of flame rose 200 feet and disappeared.

The explosion unleashed a firestorm lasting five or 10 minutes and reaching several hundred yards into the sky, said Joe Wilt, 63, who lives a quarter mile from the crash site.

A mushroom of flame rose 200 feet and disappeared. Then there was a curtain of black smoke and finally a trail of fire as pieces of the fuselage shot hundreds of yards into the woods.
(Pittsburgh Post Gazette, 9/12/01 b)


And of course there is the famous photo showing the mushroom.
