Convertible top circuit breaker location

Howdy!

Had my first fire in my 66 Galaxie. Apparently previous owner had taken the circuit breaker out of the power wire for the convertible top. I was putting the top down and as it finished
I bumped the starter (Big mistake!). Fried the wire from the relay toward the firewall for about 4 feet. Smoke started pouring out of the engine compartment. Fortunately it got hot enough that
it severed the connection of 10 gauge wire. I have a new circuit breaker and wire, my question is where was the stock one mounted?
