The interesting part about elevators and fires is that the doors tend to open when they reach a floor, and then refuse to close if there is some sort of thing blocking the optical sensor. This thing can be a human, or a plume of smoke. Thus, the signs saying not to use the elevator (and the reason why they don't work at all during an alarm, without the Magic Key).

Most people seem to assume it is because the elevator shaft fills with fire and burns through the cables or something. That's not a bad thing, as far as keeping dumbasses away goes, I suppose!
