Trap Door puzzle

A man is trapped in a room. The room has only two possible exits: two doors.
Through the first door there is a room constructed from magnifying glass. The
blazing hot sun instantly fries anything or anyone that enters. Through the
second door there is a fire-breathing dragon. How does the man escape?

Solution:
Will be updated after 1 day

The interior of this door is highly heat resistant from the fire of the dragon. The light from the sun magnified room goes into the room with the dragon in and kills it if the dragon passes in direct line of sight with the other door. This is supposing you ignore the rest of thermodynamics which states that as soon as you open the sun magnified door, you kill yourself too. Heat fills space that has an atmosphere.
