I am no electrical expert but from what you describe I would think there was alot of amperage involved and not many things could create that draw or short. Those grounds are each larger gauge wires, aren’t they? If the short was from an accessory then I would think the smaller wiring specific to the accessory would have melted or blown a fusible link or a fuse before you saw enough continued amperage to heat up and start a fire through a larger gauge ground.
As was stated above, an overload.

Have you looked at your fuse panel? Can you shine a light into the back of the panel?

Do all of your accessories still function properly?
