It's possible that the high voltage wiring overheated for some reason, which then heated the nearby sheetmetal enough to cause the carpet and plastics immediately next to it to catch fire. That's how engine compartment fires can spread to the interior despite the presence of a "firewall" and how car fires spread from car to car; if there's enough heat outside the car, eventually that heat will make its way into the car and set flammable things on fire, even if there are non-flammable materials separating the two areas.
However, as I suspected, I doubt any of the orange wires enters the passenger compartment itself. It would have no need to, as none of the high voltage components are situated within it AFAIK. There's definitely none in the cavity beneath the cupholders.
