While there is a chance the bottom might get hot, I don't worry it. Hot air is lighter than cool air, so it rises. The intake air is colder and heavier, so it will continually cool the bottom. Even w/o an elevated ash pan (which shields the bottom from direct radiant heat), I doubt the bottom would get as warm as the walls - and they are rarely more than warm to the touch.
