Iron is a metal and one of the best property of metal is that it have a very high mealting piont. SO, iron have also a very high mealting point and it cannot burn at a very high temperature.

Because the ignition temperature of iron is tremendously high so it can not burn on heating.Ignition temp is the temp at which a substance catches fire.

We know that a luminous flame is seen when atoms of gaseous substances burn.Although iron fillings burn but iron metal does not as oxygen cannot reach inside it.
