If you figure out something you can do "ecodieselfire" let me know. I'm kinda in the same boat. I guess our insurance co. is going to have a investigation in a week or so. Sorry can't get over it, had to post my pic again.
To prevent this problem carry a fire extinguisher. LOL I did. Save the truck lost the engine. FCA claim no responsibility. Insurance paid the $19,000 repair with a used engine. Used engine came with a one-year warranty Parts Only. Now I have no labor warranty on my engine. The fire happened with only 59000 MIles on the truck. FCA should have replaced with a new engine.

Update: finally got my truck back from the dealer after 30 days in shop. $7500 insurance repair. Replaced were all engine tunnel hardware, intake manifold, throttle body, wiring harness & fuel lines. Also the ECM/TCM was reflashed to meet EPA lawsuit. Now truck runs like a neutered Dog. No turbo boost at bottom end and transmission is constantly shifting into 7th or 6th gear trying to maintain 2500-3000 RPM while towing. This engine has always run between 8-7th gear with 4500lb trailer unless I'm pulling a very steep hill.
Still waiting for GM step up.

On another note: checked with NHTSA and discovered about 30 engine tires related to this truck including my report.
