Removing lead (?) paint with heat gun

I've been using a heat gun to strip paint from my woodwork and I've realized that I may be stripping lead paint. The house is old and I appear to be removing quite a few layers of paint- it's possible it's in there somewhere. I've heard of the danger of breathing lead dust released by sanding, but is there a danger in using a heat gun to melt off paint? Any info on this would be appreciated.
