Our cast iron skillets caught fire. Can they ever be used again?

We have 2 cast iron skillets, and in the process of re-seasoning them after a washing mishap, the oil in them caught fire. We put out the flames with an A,B,C dry chemical fire extinguisher, then put the pans outside to cool down (and not smoke up the house any more).
The chemical extinguisher mixed with the oil, and it seems like it's not coming off of the skillets.
What's the best route to take from here. Can the skillets be saved? If so, what's the best way to go about cleaning them?
