i have no idea what the cause was.

because the fire was in the engine compartment

Sorry to hear about your loss man.

If the trans was slipping in and out of gear, you may have been dumping trans fluid out of a line. Any of that gets on the exhaust manifolds and you end up with what happened to you.
