1 doctor agrees

In brief: Not that simple

One Egyptian study indicated "overall mortality rate among patients with inhalation injury was 41.
5% (54/130) compared with 7.2% (11/151) among patients without inhalation injury". (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3230152/) The issue is complex.
