Auto Fires

Umm, I know this is REALLY hard to try and decide over the internet without pics or more details, but if someone could give me a general idea of How Bad it is for your car to catch on fire, that would be super. My husband just called to tell me his 91 Explorer caught on fire and melted some of the stuff on top of the engine (oil cap and the like). After I was done demanding to know if he was ok and being assured he was, I started trying to figure out if it's worth trying to fix.

My friend's car caught on fire once because of a headlight and she had it fixed even though it was old, which makes me think it might not be that big of a deal, but I don't know if she had a friend who could do it for free or anything.

It's just my husband JUST got transferred and we REALLY need our 2nd car more than ever now and we were about to move into a house so even if it's relatively cheap to fix (which I DOUBT), I don't know if it would be worth it on a car so old. But we can't afford to really get into a newer one right now with all the other stuff that's going on.

Please send me some good news? :/
