And it could burn. 
 

more likely than creating a fire that would damage the car is that the soot from the burning polished the lining and the friction coefficient started to resemble glass.

I have a 2 cylinder brass era Maxwell that has oak wood blocks on the transmission bands.  I have been told that the brakes originally used the same oak wood blocks,  They were shaped to the radius of the brake drum and riveted on in small segments.
