    The fuel in planes is jet-a fuel which is not very flammable unless first heated. as well even if it was flammable u would need a spark to Ignite it.
    And the fuel is in the middle of the wings so chances are that from the tips of the wings clipping
    the fuel tanks would not have been punctured.
    So it is a big deal that the wings clipped for many other reasons but fire would be one of the last
    Just thought I would share this info
