Not nice, sorry to hear this but it's not the first time I've heard of a car catching fire after a squirt of carb cleaner down the throttle body. The first one I heard about was a 156. The guy squirted carb cleaner down the throttle body and when he started up, it caught fire.
Since then I take the entire throttle body off to clean it and wipe any excess off before replacing.
