If it got that hot then you may have damaged the ignition coil ... Pray that's the only problem.

If it got too hot it can collapse the rings and blue the block thus ruining the engine, test the compression, if it is not at specs then you may need to tear it down to find just how muck damage was done. If you have good compression and no spark check the wiring diagram below for further things to check.
