We'll probably never know exactly what happened, but when the engine is installed on the mower, there is a sizable gap between the block and back the seat/frame right where the hole on your block is. Under that gap you have belts and idlers right there. Your wiring harness, and fuel lines, also travel through this gap. On top of that, this area is exposed, meaning leafs or debris can settle in this gap. Friction from belt sparked leaves/debris, which caught a fuel line and expanded from there? Speculation only of course.
