sculpture armature

I was wondering if anyone knew if you can use a high fire wire for part of an
armature for water-based clay sculpture.
I also work in oil-based clay where armature material is insignificant due to
making a mold.
But with waterbased, where you have to hollow out the piece, but still need
additional support for say, arms, can the high-fire wire be left inside the
arms and not cause damage when fired? Thanks in advance for any help!!!
