Don't use any of the parts until you have them tested for hardness. The heat from the fire could have softened the metal in all of the gears and axles. I have rebuilt some rear ends that had been in fires before and the gears were soft, way too soft to use. If you try to run soft gears you will end up with a rear end full of gear teeth.
