Heat Melts ATV

We have been attending the Spring Fire briefings each day and yesterday on the wall was this display. I thought at first it was a piece of art but what it really is - is what is left of an ATV. The heat was so intense that it melted the entire ATV and this is what is left. This wildfire generated intense heat. 

Aluminum melts at 1220 degrees  (f) and a wildfire with fuel burns up to 1,472 or hotter.  One of our neighbors brought this in to share and so we could see how hot it was. The heat ignites anything in its path...
