Usually a big wood member will still have considerable strength. If the amount of wood left after the char is removed is sufficient for the forces intended, you should be able to reuse it. The question is do you want to? Depending on the overall damage, you may want to demo the whole roof and use all new components. 2x's are ok if they have only smoke or surface exposure, otherwise, I usually replace them. I would think the spalling is from beams falling and their embedded anchors pulling out of the concrete.
