Meting point for aluminum is 1,221 degrees Fahrenheit.
Boiling point is 4,478 degrees Fahrenheit.
Fires like those in Gatlinburg probably reached more than 2,000 plus degrees. If you look close at some of the pictures, there is literally nothing left other than metal, block, brick.

I feel so ******* awful for what happened up there. I was in Gatlinburg not 2 years ago and I had a great time up there. Hope you guys recover quickly.

Several folks from church were out there at their cabin. Just barely got out, that is a horrible especially that some idiots set the fires.

The two ******* kids should be set on fire publicly.

It's awful, but that picture is crazy and I did chuckle until I realized where it was.
