The wiring harnesses are what you call, "Modular". They come in sections. I would hunt arround scrap yards for the sections you need. You could remove that particular section and repair it so long as you use that particular diameter wiring. It sounds like there was a short circuit in that section. There should have been a fuse or fusable link to protect that system.
