If you can wait for it (shouldn't be too much longer), there are some in the
ASCE/FEMA report on the Pentagon experience on 9/11. This report will be
similar to the one that has already been released on the World Trade Center.
Interestingly, the structural story is about the same, too: plane impact,
structural damage, debris spray through structure removed the fire
protection (spray-on in WTC, concrete cover in Pentagon) exposing the steel,
huge fire, fire-induced collapse of structure occuring after impact.

There is also a book available from CRSI called "Reinforced Concrete Fire
Resistance". It is very useful, even for steel structures. No pictures,
though. Just descriptions of what can be expected.
