I figure it would be just like any other strip job JMO, Take a DA and sand it down after removing all other parts that would be removed anyway to strip it.
And notice if there are mo damage like if the metal is warped or not which i am sure it probably is some what warped from the heat but you might have got lucky.JMO Got any pics of the damage ?

I'm in the process of doing the same on my truck, I started on the bed with an angle grinder and norton striping pads, avail at home depot, after a few night of this I have started with aircraft stripper from kelly more, it is a brush on scrape off application, then lightly following with the angle grinder and striping pads

I blast or dip ever thing I do but like eloc431962 said if you have paint that has damage from fire then more then likely you have a panel that is damaged and may cost more to repair it then to replace it
