Angry Espace up in smoke

Let me start from the begining

This morning i got the kids in the car and myself. I turned the ignition on and started the car, My wife had been out in the car the night before so i adjusted the mirrors with the mirror joystick on the drivers door, Went to pull away and noticed there was a little bit of smoke coming out of the mirror joystick. I stopped the car and turned the ignition off quick, by this time there was a lot of smoke coming out of the whole door!!! I quickly got the kids out of the car and stood them on the pavement whilst i franticly pulled evey fuse out of the fuse box, which had no effect and again by this time the top of the drivers door console were the electric window switch's are had started to MELT!! I then went to the battery and yanked the possitive lead off the terminal then ripped the drivers door panel off to put out the FLAMES!! Belive me when i say say it was scary it was scary. My point to any one that reads this is Please Please Please check your mirror adjuster for any sign of wear or corrosion, This is a constent live. I hate to think what might of happened to my family or the car if my wife was on her own because, as she confesses she would not of had a clue what to do.

Has any one else had this sort of problem and is there any thing else i need to check before that go's up in Smoke.
