100C isn't hot enough to cause things to burn on a PC... Fail yes, catch fire no. Motherboards are made of plastics/oils/fiberglass, most the times it can stand 120C for a fraction of a second prior to failure, but wont burn, usually you catch fire around 200C. Paper burns at ~233C.
Have I seen motherboards catch fire? Yes, but only due to a failure of a circuit creating an electrical arc that caused the oil in the plastic components to catch fire. Never due to heat alone.
