To the OP:
If I understood your description correctly, initially (i.e. when you opened the hood) the fire was fairly localized. If so, which part of the engine compartment it was located in?
I've attached a stock image from the net and used an arrow to show where I saw the fire start from (or at least where I thought I saw it start)
