The commercial certificated pilot was landing a wheel-equipped airplane at a private gravel-covered airstrip during a Title 14, CFR Part 91 personal flight. The pilot said he inadvertently allowed the airplane to touchdown about 23 feet short of the airstrip, and the airplane's nose wheel collided with a dirt embankment. The nose wheel collapsed, but the airplane continued the landing roll on the gravel-covered airstrip. During the landing roll an engine compartment fire ensued. After the pilot exited, fire consumed the entire airplane. The pilot noted that there were no preaccident mechanical anomalies with the airplane.
