A cable having one or more conductive members and one or more strength members. Each conductive member has a metal microwire having an outer diameter and an inorganic cladding having an inner diameter. The microwire is positioned within the cladding, and the outer diameter of the microwire is at least about 2 microns less then the inner diameter of the cladding. Each strength member has a plurality of inorganic fibers surrounding the conductive members or an inorganic rod. The conductive members are conductive while applying a voltage of 5000 V to the conductive members and while exposing the cable to a temperature of about 1000° C.
