Default 1998 Acura 3.2 TL - Spark plug, cylinder head problem

I have a 98 3.2 TL. Somehow the porcelain from the inside of the spark plug broke off and fell into the engine. Then somehow the spark plug unthreaded itself, and the hot combustion gas burnt the ignition coil (yes this all really happened) and basically burnt the spark plug threads in the process so they do not function right now.

I'm wondering if this has ever happened to anyone else. And if so, if it did damage to the valves, piston, cylinder, etc? I'm also not sure what kind of clearance there is between the top of the piston and the bottom of the cylinder head. If it is basically zero clearance in parts of it, I'm thinking there could be some big problems. Any advice, experience, or input would be very much appreciated.
