I'm only referring to the NASA authenticated hot spots.

I'm not suggesting they were hot enough to melt steel. If I remember correctly, NASA pegged them at about 1800. I was only addressing the oft repeated mantra that ordinary fires can't get that hot. Under certain conditions, they can. I agree with you that since any fuel would be stationary and likely dense, the fires would necessarily be transient, and unlikely to generate such heat, but I can't rule it out. This was a pretty unique event, with little to compare.
