Shows the scope of the arc resulting from the insulation being damaged. It takes a lot of electricity to power Madison.

Notice that the porcelain insulation has been burnt, and a hole has burned through the bus bar. How hot does porcelain have to get to burn?

This shows two of the protective cages, and what's left of the third.
