The wall outlet and cord plug overheated and must be replaced. Why didn’t the breaker shut off the power?
The circuit breaker shuts off the power when the amount of amperage is too high. For instance, the breaker will shut off when it detects a short circuit. The breaker cannot detect a loose connection that causes a wall outlet to burn up.
