Electrical question about: Troubleshooting

Received from a Homeowner in Birmingham NY

Question: I had a wire nut with 3 wht 18 ga wires “pop” (melted and broke all at once). The other 2 wire nuts were fine. None were close to anything (not even each other) there was less than 500 watts ever used on that line and the wires weren’t loose. What could cause that?
