Title: VME Toaster - has anyone else experienced this?

On the night of 30th December 2007, a fire broke out in one of our control system's VME crates. Considerable damage was inflicted on the crate, but fortunately the fire did not spread.  On examination of the crate and VME cards, the P1 connector, to which a "MAXv 8000" card was connected, had been destroyed by heat/flame.  Electrical burning of some components was evident on the MAXv card, these components were well away from the direct heat of the main area of combustion (components close to the fire were of course destroyed).

We are presently trying to ascertain which component caused the failure (the MAXv card, P1 connector or VME backplane).

Has anyone else experienced this type of event, in particular with the MAXv motor control card?
