I've seen this a number of times. In all cases the problem was either a wrong too long screw on the feed side or a continued disreguard for a high resistance connection till the point where the heat allowed the circuit to melt down allowing the screw to touch the body on the feed side.

Tight clean connections of original specification have no problems even with shorted components. The fuse will blow.
