Sounds good but very unlikely from any heat damage. The S/36 like all IBM systems other than pc's has "high heat" protection and will shut down before any damage occurs. Any heat high enough to damage the S/36 would have destroyed most plastic objects and curled the flooring. The only thing that will "fry" a system is the dreaded direct "lightning strike" on a building with the system not protected by decent UPS system.
