Fuse should be number F12 in the engine bay panel and a 15A rating.

most probably caused by poor connection at plug, poor connection will create heat, making connection worse, making more heat etc etc...
just make sure all connections are clean and tight, may also find the wiring leading to the plug has blackened too....might pay to strip back insulation till you get clean copper, cut away anything looking slightly blackened, then solder a new length of wiring/plug in...

I agree with the above but the fuse should have blown its a fuel pump in petrol quite a scary thought

fuse wouldnt come into it unless wires shorted across, sounds a simple case of localised overheating due to poor connection.
