That would be unlikely in a fairly short term shutdown. The venturi doesn't generate much in the way of combustion gas.

Sometimes nothing you do will help. The worst power failure we ever had was in our overhead fluorine melter. It was an AZS 200lb unit and we had just put about a forty lb charge in it of a cadmium yellow opaque and someone hit a power pole knocking it down. The vents failed and they were big vents running 30,000 CFM from the building. The black smoke began to billow out of the furnace and we evacuated the shop entirely. The failure went on for four hours. They furnace was essentially destroyed throwing stones the size of a clamshell. Never ran it again.
Where are we going and why am I in this basket?
