The interior lighting circuits are switched-ground rather than switched-power like most everything else, so if any of their wiring grounds itself to the body, the lights will go on rather than fuses blowing (at least in some cases).

I'd check to see if maybe the headlamp **** was turned almost all the way counterclockwise...? Otherwise there might be a problem with one of the door switches. Anything else on the car that'* not working? Any aftermarket stuff been added recently?
