Can you make a fire pit out of aluminum?
Similarly, it is asked, will an aluminum can melt in a fire?
' In fire tests on aluminium materials, when the temperature exceeds the melting point, in the range 600-660°C, the aluminium surface exposed to the fire can be seen to melt, but it does not burn. If aluminium is involved in a fire and the temperature rises to above its melting point, the metal begins to melt.
