I've seen from a previous question that lava destroys spawners. (Source)

Does it mean that Spawners are flammable and that you would actually be able to destroy a Spawner using lava?

No it's not. I was in a dungeon and I tried to surround it with lava. All it did was to stop the spawning. But the block stayed.

From the Minecraft Wiki:

TNT, bookshelves, leaves, wool, fences, wood, planks, and wooden stairs are flammable. If flammable blocks are within 3 meters of lava, they will eventually catch fire. Non-flammable blocks block this effect, but not the spreading of active fire. The “embers” or “fireballs” which fly out of lava are purely decorative and do not directly cause fires.
