alternator mega fuse melted?

Recently I changed out the headagasket so most of the car was all apart. About a week after I finished i smell a burning plastic smell, finally pinpoint it as the alternator mega fuse. The passenger side part of it the nut wasnt all the way tight and that side the case is all metled. it even manged to burn its way about 1/4 of the way through the screw.

My question is did this happen from the nut not being tightened all the way and leaning against the plastic or would this be from improper wiring of the alt. everything looks okay with the alt and the car never had a problem with charging.
