Exploding Engines!

Okay okay, it isn't that exciting.

My sister recently got her mazda tribute 2002 serviced at the local dealership in Ottawa, ON and they did some work around the engine (I think on the heatshield) and an oil change as part of the 80,000km maintainance, including re-threading the drain plug (which a london, ON, Mazda dealership supposedly stripped).* Upon driving back to Toronto where she lives, the oil light came on and the engine caught on fire!* She had it towed to a Toronto dealership for $250.

What course of action would you guys suggest she take.

-(dealership its at in Toronto is owned by the same guy as the Ottawa dealership, she should get the inspection results later today or early tomorrow)

Thanks,
Elmokiddo

So heres the latest, the dealership in Toronto say that the car is 6 months out of warranty and the problem was that a rod went through the engine block...
