Purely speculation but I suppose it depends on what's around the base of the mast and its guy anchors. Looking at this photo
there is grassland around but a tarmaced road at one side so I suppose that could halt it from that direction. Transmitter buildings themselves are usually pretty sturdy and secure
If the fire reached the bottom of one of the guys and was sufficient to weaken it then the mast could come down, I wouldn't have thought it would be hot enough to do that, unless the grease they put on the guys is flammable.
Or might there be issues with smoke being sucked into the air inlets for the air conditioning system that cools the transmitters?
