How bad did it burn? If it was locallized from a spill and you put it out quickly, a simple check of things around the flame area should tell you if any major damage to external wiring or electronics was done. If there is no evidense of such, start it up and drive. (good idea to make sure the spilled oil is cleaned up before doing this)
