Narrative:
According to the pilot, after several attempts to extend the landing gear, he manually extended the landing gear. After a "slow" landing and a "brief" rollout, the landing gear collapsed. The airplane settled onto the runway, slid approximately 200 feet and came to a stop on the runway centerline. Within a few moments a fire ensued, destroying the airplane. A witness stated that the airplane landed on its tires and then rolled several feet before the landing gear collapsed. An examination of the airplane revealed no anomalies.

Probable Cause: the failure of the landing gear extension system for undetermined reasons.
