Would putting a candle in a hotter oven put out the flame?

If a certain type of chemical reaction (such as a candle in this example) produces a flame of 300 degrees, and you put it into an oven that's at 400 degrees, would that put the flame out on the candle, because the surrounding air is putting more energy into reactants than the reaction itself produces?

    It would melt the candle and the puddle of molten wax would continue to burn.
