    It's the Red Priest, Thoros of Myr, who always fought with the flaming sword, so Dondarian really did do it for this fight just to intimidate Clegane. The point remains, though, that anything burning much hotter than a candle would quickly destroy the sharpness of the edge and the temper of a fine steel sword, even before the wielder could get into the fight. It would turn it into a light iron club, less useful than a mace. So we're left with magic. Oh, well...
