Brief Facts: Following a normal engine start the pilot states she heard a "pop" followed by the smell of smoke, erratic engine sound and the illumination of the oil light.  Ground personel alerted the pilot that there was a fire in the engine area and the engine was shut down.  It appears that a cylinder fuel drain line hole allowed fuel to leak onto the lower cowl and ignite shortly after engien start.     

General Description of Damage (May not be limited to the following obvious damage):  The engine, engine cowls, engine accessories, engine mount, electrical, firewall and lower, forward composite fuselage (fuselage to lower firewall area) were subjected to heat/fire.  It is undersotod that the composite damage is repairable by way of a Cirrus Aircraft engineering repair scheme.  -  You are encouraged to inspect the wreckage before bidding.
