If I spray the squealing belt in my dryer with dressing do I risk fire since it is gas operated?

The dryer is 30 years old and used all but 5 or 6 of those years. The squeal is loud when I first turn the dryer on but it goes away after the dryer runs for 5-10 minutes. The dryer completes the 40-50 minute cycle with no problem. This just started 2 weeks ago. Can I squirt the STP belt dressing that I use for my automobile fan belts (it quiets those down) on the dryer belt? Considering that it is a gas heater, I don't want to burn the house down. It has sentimental value and I'd like to keep it for another 20 years, at least.
