When you turn it on, does it still work OK while it's on fire? If so, it might not be that big of a deal. Just keep things that can catch fire easily away from the PC and you should be good to go.

Alternatively, if you don't want it to be on fire (which IMO is pretty cool), you could douse it with water while the fire is burning. Please report back how either of these solutions work, in case anybody else has a similar problem.
