I would not be surprised to see the heavy oak structure survive relatively unscathed. I'm not familiar with the fire resistance of oak, but it isn't uncommon for jarrah and other Australian hardwood members to survive building fires that would leave steel members looking like licorice. I know of at least one building that was rebuilt using the original timbers. One can only hope that this is the case here.
