FRIED WIRES

Honda Civic

1999 honda civic, 200k, 4 cylinder
what would cause computer wires to fry?
and would the car still be able to work?
when we started to drive the car the speedometer wouldn't work and it took it a while to get up to speed and the drive light was flashing. This happened before and it was a problem with the gears. We drove it to the garage and a couple of days later, after waiting for them to fix it they finally told us the wires caught fire. We didn't smell smoke or anything when we drove it there. Are these things related or is it possible the mechanic could have blown the wires trying to fix it?
