Don't know about the fire rumor but there was another rumor that the Switzer brothers(Bob and Dave)destroyed the molds themselves because of concern that blowovers were causing too many injuries. Not substansiated but it does make for a good story. The is no doubt that the performance of the Switzer Wing surpassed anything available in the 60's. Imagine what would have happened had Bob been a little younger and continued development with today's engines.
