A very interesting question indeed.
I would venture to say yes. The brain is a very complicated super computer and if a person is blind from birth the other senses are boosted highly. Blind people see with their ear's, by touch, smell, etc. Helen Keller had the ability to see a person by feeling their face thus giving her a mental image to see in her mind.
Blind people read by braille which again gives them a mental image to form and see in their mind.
That being said I'm not sure if they can form the colors we see. They can read what a flame looks like and feel the heat from a fire but again...I'm not sure if they can form the spectrum of flame color we are able to see from yellow, to blue to white hot.
