Ive had a few UPC's on scenics that when they get water inside them can, if left in gear engage the starter and shoot off down the road. We had one in the other week with this fault and it started itself up in the workshop, as it was left in reverse it calmly backed out of thw workshop on is own and smashed into the showroom wall. yours could how ever of been in neutral and burned the starter out as the fire appears to have started in the engine bay and possibly at the n/s/f.
