Steel is cut with a torch all the time, so that is likely not a concern. More important I think is to evaluate the cutting that was done from the standpoint of the cut surfaces and corners of the cuts. If they are rough with sharp notches and corners, this may be a problem, particularly at the tension flange. There is info on acceptable edge conditions here:
See in particular FAQs 2.2.4 to 2.2.8.
Hope this helps.
A steel fabricator has a situation where he is required by
the project SEOR to certify that a simple span W14x90 beam has not become
structurally deficient due to his field crew removing 2"x3" notches
from the top and bottom flanges along its length at 16"o.c. The notches
occur at only one side of the web and occurred via torch cutting.
