Obtain a wiring schematic and start disconnecting the wiring for the components that the ignition switch powers. Start with any add-on electronic devices such as stereo equipment. Something in your system is shorted or drawing a tremendous amount of current producing the heat. Be careful, it could be a potential fire hazard.

Not sure if it is related or not, but this vehicle had program 94B55 way back in 1994 that was for a fuel pump wire harness issue...installed a circuit protected jumper harness to the pump. I remember several of these melting all the way up into the dash. Would be worth looking at.
