Headlight wire Fire help

So my friends 328ci started on fire on the from driver side by the headlight. We turned off the fire before it got worse and afte inspecting it it seems like the fire started from the headlight wiring because the headlight is melted, the headlight wires are all melted along with the wore that goes to the temp sensor. Do you guys have any idea what could have caused this? And also where can I get new wiring harness for the headlight? And the wiring harness for the coolant temp sensor?

wow luckily you saved that. e46 catching fire in the headlight is sorta of a "common" problem. well not just e46 but car with ballast/hid

the ballast ignites the HID and sometimes lets say it ignite wrongly
