I have seen a documantary on oil fires before and they had a dozer that was done up with something along those lines to keep the heat off it.

They had an Omni/IMAX film out shortly after Gulf War 1 about the oil fires. They had a international teams from all over and showed the experirmenting they were doing to try to put out the fires. Everything from explosions to gaurded dozers. The coolest 1 IMO was the Check- Slovakn (no longer country) tank with 2 mig jet engines mounted on the turret with water cannons. They would drive this thing up to the burning well head ...power up the jets and water....and blow the fire out:weightlifter:

Another good one; Hellfighters, with John Wayne. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0063060/ I believe they used a lot of real life footage in making the movie. I also had watched this as a kid and when the oil fires in Kuwait were going on I had a good grasp of it. Also saw an Imax film years ago about it, Fires of Kuwait I believe. Pretty intense when the theatre screen is wrapped around you. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0104275/
