DURING A PROFICIENCY FLT CHECK, THE AIRCREW WAS MAKING A N0-FLAP LANDING. AFTER COMPLETING THE LANDING CHECKLIST DOWN TO THE LANDING GEAR, POWER WAS REDUCED CAUSING THE LANDING GEAR AUDIBLE WARNING TO SOUND. THE HORN SILENCE SWITCH WAS DEPRESSED & THE APCH WAS CONTINUED. DUE TO THE LOW POWER THAT WAS REQUIRED FOR THE NO-FLAP APCH, THE THROTTLE WAS NEVER ADVANCED SUFFICIENTLY TO RESET THE WARNING HORN. SUBSEQUENTLY, THE ACFT WAS LANDED WITH THE GEAR RETRACTED. AFTER SLIDING TO A STOP, A SMALL ELECTRICAL FIRE ERUPTED IN THE BELLY OF THE ACFT, BUT ARPT PERSONNEL QUICKLY EXTINGUISHED IT. THE PLT BEING CHECKED SAID HE WAS DISTRACTED BY A CONVERSATION CONCERNING ENG FIRE PROCEDURES. ALSO, HE THOUGHT THE CHECK PLT HAD CALLED THAT THE LANDING CHECK WAS COMPLETE. THE CHECK PLT STATED THAT HE HAD CALLED ONLY THE NO-FLAP CHECKLIST COMPLETE WITH THE BEFORE LANDING CHECKLIST COMPLETE DOWN TO THE LANDING GEAR. THE PROFICIENCY FLT WAS BEGUN ON A SHORT NOTICE WHEN ANOTHER CHECK PLT COULD NOT BE FOUND.
