Samsung refrigerator had frozen line causing water and ice to drain into crisper area. Removed back inside panel, located line, and attempted to defrost with hair dryer. When that didnt work, inserted (pounded) bbq skewer into line to break up ice. Spouse thinks he may have punctured line. Fridge working fine now. But if line was punctured, could it cause a fire?

A punctured water line will not cause a fire. It might cause a flood from water leaking.
