I think the best answer is - nobody knows so far.

is there a string theory equivalent of this?

We introduce the notion of fluid approximation of a quantum spherical black hole in the context of Loop Quantum Gravity. In this limit, the microstates of the black hole are intertwiners between "large" representations si" role="presentation">si

which typically scale as si∼aH" role="presentation">si∼√aH where aH" role="presentation">aH denotes the area of the horizon in Planck units. The punctures with large colors are, for the black hole horizon, similar to what are the fluid parcels for a classical fluid. We dub them puncels. Hence, in the fluid limit, the horizon is composed by puncels which are themselves interpreted as composed (in the sense of the tensor product) by a large number of more fundamental intertwiners. We study the spectrum of the euclidean volume acting on puncels and we compute its quantum fluctuations. Then, we propose an interpretation of black holes radiation based on the properties of the quantum fluctuations of the euclidean volume operator. We estimate a typical temperature of the black hole and we show that it scales as the Hawking temperature.

in terms of occam's razor, LQG's results as referenced in the paper for non-extremel hawking radiation in 4D seem simpler and more intuitive, makes more contact with established physics than strings as described by the above. hawking showed black holes have entropy and emit radiation, and LQG seems to offer the microstates that account for both more simply than strings.
