The attached photograph is actually a stereo pair, each created using Helicon Focus (each created from about 40 images). Viewed cross-eyed, they form a 3 dimensional stereo image showing the depth of the arcing damage into the cable. Individual strands of the copper wire are visible in the melted hole caused by the arcing. In reality the hole was about 1/2 inch in diameter and a little less than that in depth.
