Yes, actually just separate those wires and see if it starts. If it does, wrap a piece of tape around each of them temporarily. Take it home and repair it the right way yourself and you should be good to go for a few dollars. A decent mechanic could have done that for you so you could drive it home and recommended the proper repair at a later point in time. It looks like the short was between the yellow(signal) wire and the purple(ground to VCM). I would check and repair each of the three wires as the third wire green(12v +) from fuse block looks like has very few conductors left in tact.
This photo was of my latest menagerie I've was blessed with finding.
