How can I get a smog certificate when I had an electrical fire that shorted out?

(1999 Chevrolet S10)
A small electrical fire that sent smoke into the cab, but quickly burned itself out, is preventing me from getting it smogged. The truck runs fine, but no diagnostic connection can be made. Would this situation qualify me for an extension with DMV allowing me more time to find someone to run down the wiring problem & fix it? Not sure what direction to go in.

Failing the smog will buy you an extra 30 days to get the vehicle repaired. You can always pay your registration before smogging the vehicle. Need to repair any wiring damages so computer can read OBDII for smog. Once repaired, vehicle may need further smog diagnostics. Recommend bringing vehicle into certified smog repair shop.
