Narrative:
The pilot said that he had made two touch-and-go landings. As he applied power to take off, the airplane "would not accelerate." He stopped the airplane on the runway and the engine quit. He used the primer and attempted to restart the engine. His passenger then noticed a fire under the instrument panel. Both occupants evacuated the airplane. Fire inspectors examined the airplane but were unable to determine either the origin or cause of the fire, but it was noted that the most intense portion of the fire was in the cabin area. The pilot held a student pilot certificate that expired in 2004. He did not hold a valid Federal Aviation Administration medical certificate and refused to complete the NTSB Operator Aircraft Accident/Incident Report form.
Probable Cause: A fire of undetermined cause that originated in the airplane's cabin.
