SOURCE: Secondary air injection pump, 01 GMC Jimmy V6

You didn't mention the fuse rating of the one you replaced so this method may not help if it was higher than ~5 amps.At this point, I would wire a 12 volt bulb, preferably, one with 40-50 watts rating (headlamp will do fine) in place of the fuse that is blowing and start pulling likely connectors until the light goes out. If you don't get results this way, you might try disturbing one bundle of wire after another since this could be happening because of insulation that has been pinched or worn through to reach ground.
Using a bulb instead of bridging the fuse with a piece of coathanger will prevent melting the wire and possibly compounding the problem.

You can turn it by hand just dont force it.Are you missing any shims and are all your connections tight.Check for good ground and all connections to starter and battery..

Why don't I have power to ignition switch and distributor?

Your starter is powered by a starter relay. It is usually in a panel under the hood. If your car isn't turning over, its the first thing you should check.

Fire under the hood. 1989 Jeep Cherokee

Well, If the wiring is all that you burned, then all you need to do is basically replace the engine harness and depending on where the fire is, you may have to rewire sensors or replace sensors with the second option of replacing being the safer option of not causing problems. If you are looking for used parts, you can go to otherwise you can buy from the local jeep dealer who will have diagrams that you can look at to help figure out where everything goes if you get lost. I'm not sure what all burnt, but a new harness can be costly, and hopefully the computer is fine. What exactly got burned besides the wiring?

Anyway good luck and let me know if you have any questions during the repair
