According to the pilot, the propeller struck the asphalt runway when the aircraft landed. He detected a fire, and he and his passenger exited the right side of the aircraft. The airplane was then consumed by fire. After the fire was extinguished by airport fire and rescue personnel, a postaccident examination of the aircraft was performed by an FAA inspector and fire and rescue investigators. The landing gear handle was found in the UP position, as was each of the landing gear doors. Fireworks and several cigars were found in the aft cabin section. The majority of the fire occurred on the right side of the aircraft. According to the FAA inspector, the fire appeared to have started aft of the firewall. Due to the damage the aircraft sustained as a result of the fire, the exact source of the fire could not be determined. They were also unable to determine whether the fire was initiated prior to or subsequent to the aircraft's landing.

Probable Cause: The pilot's inadvertent wheels up landing.
