Melting Steel

What's the flashpoint of industrial steel?

How hot would it have to get before such steel began to melt?

And how would a point source of such heat dissipate through a room?

I ask for writing purposes of course. I have an extreme (but brief) heat source in the middle of a modest sized bank vault, and I don't want to melt the vault, but I want the heat source to be as high as it can be.

Bueller?

Thanks!
