Even if the core had been loaded, HE-implosion based nuclear bombs require incredibly precise timing of the explosives to compress the core to criticality. You could never get a nuclear detonation from a bomb in a fire. It is essentially impossible to detonate one of these unless you do it on purpose. It would have been a dirty bomb, yes, and dangerous. But 6 figure immediate death toll? Only if you have no concept of how these bombs work.
