First, only vapors burn.  Lube will liquefy (and expand) and flow from pressure.  As the liquid flows to the base it builds up at the GC dam and exerts pressure on the alloy, compressing it.  Larry G. has noted the recovered cast are smaller than bore due to the in-compressibily of the liquid lube – same happens at the base/GC.
