Can a Midwest bucket handle 200 degree wort?

In a hurry and just want to let this natural cool but afraid the bucket might melt

Anyone have experience

I would not put that hot of liquid in a plastic bucket. Never tried but it seems like a bad idea to me. I would let it cool in the pot and then move it later.
