Default Fire Damage?

I've yet to see fire damage in person. This has a lot of dull red that doesn't look like rust, and a few shiny spots. I don't know what "scaly" would look like since again I've never seen it.

It kind of does, but not exactly. The reddish coloration of classic fire damage is usually more a rosy red, but lighting, camera flash can make it look different.

Is it red on the other side?

No, just red on the bottom. Does it normally go all the way through?

It's definitely not rosy, more dull brick red.

Hard to tell, but it looks like probably rust. The bottom doesn't look like it was seasoned often and the seasoning just burned off. Once wet, here comes the rust.

Try steel wool and see if it comes off. If it doesn't come off or get better, fire damage is more likely.
