I Doubt it'll start a fire but it can't be good for the amp.

was it on standby or running completely?

EDIT: to save some time waiting for a reply...if the amp was on standby the tubes and the amp itself wasn't running on full power so there's a better chance that no damage was done. however if the amp was off standby, there's a great chance you've just destroyed your amp. i would inspect it before playing through it again, look at the tubes, hit them with a pencil, make sure there's nothing weird going on with them.

EDIT 2: oh it's a fire you're worried about. well it's hard to tell, do you keep highly flammable objects right next to your amp? if not, then i don't think anything would really happen unless you have a gas leak in your house or something....quick, go check your gas!
