catching fire upon emergency-landing

Dear all,

what are the chances of an aircraft catching fire during an emergency-landing and burn out on the ground (with the pilot surviving)? On the 14th of February 1944 Feldwebel Haspel emergency-landed his Bf 109 at Volkel airfield and it burned out, the pilot surviving unscathed. Could it be because of the engine overheating and catching fire or also because of friction on the runway?
