Is there anyone who can take responsibility for my car catching fire?

Yesterday, my car caught on fire. The fire marshall says that it is due to a problem for which there is a recall. Overall though, my car insurance is only PIP which means that I don’t get any compensation for my car’s damage. The fire was so grand that it even made some damage to my house. What can I do?

Find out what exactly the defect is. If the fire is truely the result of a manufacturer's defect, like the marshall said, then the manufacturer is responsible.
