Is it common for the plastic heater core box on the firewall to disentegrate?

in Columbia, MO on February 12, 2013
I started smelling burning plastic from the engine compartment then I discovered the plastic housing is disentegrating due to engine temperature exposure. Bit of plastic are contacting the exhaust manifold. Is there a solution?
