The glowing fuse problem needs to be addressed as it probably is a “dead short” in something that is controlled by that circuit. The fuel door can be opened this way:

“An alternate Fuel Door release is located inside the trunk on the drivers side. Pull it to release the door”
It looks like a small handle most likely red or yellow in color (I am guessing on the color since the picture is in black & white)
I got this directly from the 1999 Cadillac DeVille Owners Manual, Section 6 Page 6. it can be down loaded free at:

I hope this helps.
