Does heat melt lenses?

Hi everyone,

Thinking of shooting things with fire in the photo, the lens would be quite close to it (and maybe even extension tubes will be used).

In here: https://global.canon/en/quality/story/vol02.html, Canon explains why Canon paints their lenses white, is to protect the lenses from heat.

Would like to know if this is a concern.
