engine caught fire while driving

While driving 55mph the temperature gauge went hot then to normal. Did this for a few seconds then cold. At that time the engine light came on and a few seconds later a message, Check RSC Now, came on. A few seconds later the engine shut off and I pulled over to the side of the road, unlatched the hood and saw lots of black smoke and fire under the hood. The fire was started while I was driving.
