Not sure if you're familiar with golden age Torch, but he was an android that was put in a glass case, because when he came in contact with air he would burst into flames.
Since the Torch had his initial flame out at a press conference, I figure that might have happened at the Expo a few days later. By then Steve had been transformed and was on his way to USO glory, so he wouldn't have been involved in the conflagration.
