The top element of my 6-year-old General Electric GE JBP24B0B4WH oven went on electrical fire and the top bake element broke open when the fire department put it out.

I need advice since this is the first time my oven went on fire all by itself.
The fire department said replace the oven.
Coworkers told me I can just replace the burned out top bake oven element. Whose advice should I follow?
Can I just replace the bake element (or is the oven really kaput)? Can anyone tell me what actually caused the fire (it wasn't food)? http://www.flickr.com/photos/donnaohl/2923845906 /
