Engine Mechanical problem

Can a car catch on fire from a high ampage battery? We ended up buying a Everstart Maxx 35 because we were told that it was the only one that would go to the car, but we knew that the Everstart 26R-5S a lower ampage battery would also go to the car. The battery was installed without our permission, but we went ahead and agreed to purchase it because it was already there. As soon as we left the place the car caught on fire by the passenger side headlight and then the engine ingulfed in flames. So I really need a professional opinion to see if I had of gotten the lower ampage would it have caught on fire as well? Was it the high ampage that caused the fire? Or do you think because the fire didn't start at the battery then it was another non related existing problem? Thank you for your time.
have the same problem?
