The pilot of a tailwheel-equipped airplane had completed a short cross-country flight and reported he had an uneventful landing. The pilot added that during the roll out, the airplane swerved left, so he added control inputs to stop the swerve, but was unsuccessful. The airplane continued to turn 300, experienced a ground loop, the right main landing gear collapsed, and the propeller struck the ground. A small fire erupted near the fuel selector which the pilot was unable to extinguish, and the fire consumed the majority of the airplane. There were no reports of any pre-accident mechanical failures or malfunctions that would have precluded normal operation.
