Once you think you have heard it all.........This.

Likely you have a hot wire from the battery shorting against the tank, hood, hood bracket, etc. Pinched wire, un shielded hot battery terminal end shorting against the battery hold down? Terminal pushed down against the battery hold down and no insulation on the terminal beyond where the cable enters the terminal? The current is taking the line of least resistance to ground. Fuel line is a convenient route.

Probably fried the Petronic module which caused the engine to stop.

You got lucky. Gasoline in a closed system with no fumes close by will handle a lot of heat as you found out. It ignites only when fumes are present and there is a spark or an open flame close by.
