I have never heard of a fire being caused by a poor install...yet. But as mentioned, wire that is too small will heat up if you draw more current through it than was originally intended. And you can be sure that car manufacturers use the smallest AWG they can get away with since it saves weight and cost. Copper is getting pricey.

But more than likely they were probably just hoping you were a douche and would fail the idiot test and run, or have a warrant, etc...
