I haven't heard of the bag scorching or melting. If you are heating with your bag in you should stir it while you apply heat. As long as your bag is wet it shouldn't melt or scorch. You can boil water over an open flame in a Styrofoam cup.
If you insulate your kettle well during the mash you shouldn't have to heat much.
