Let's start with the basics and do some very easy tests.

Unplug the green connector on top of the fuel distributor shown in the photo. DO NOT PRESS ON THE METERING PLATE as this could hydro-lock your engine with fuel........very bad.
Turn the ignition key to "On" and listen for the fuel pumps in the front of the car and at the left rear wheel well. After you've confirmed the fuel pumps are running, turn the ignition switch to "off" and reconnect the plug on the fuel distributor.

You mentioned that you got a fire out the exhaust pipe which makes me suspect the engine is being put in an over rich condition.
