You are correct there are no recalls. I have not heard of this specific issue happening on this vehicle so there isn't anything that jumps out and I am very familiar with the vehicles.
If there was enough smoke to get the kids out and you found some inside the vehicle, it sounds like something shorted. However, until it is found and repaired, it could happen again. Usually the wire itself is not the issue, it is what is around the wire that is concerning. If the wire gets hot and it could cause something else to catch on fire.
It is a good thing that the smoke went away but I would not delay in getting to the source of it so we can be sure it won't happen again.
Unfortunately, the only way to find it is start dissembling the vehicle in the area it was coming from until you find the source.
Lastly, I would not park this vehicle inside your garage or next to your house until this is fixed. This is a complete over-precaution but it is better to be safe.
Let me know if you need more info and I will be happy to help.
