That fuse didn't blow and because of this your harness has been damaged, so you still have a problem there. I believe that is what they are looking at, called it the contributing factor. Did you ever figure out what caused the wire to melt in the first place? Sounds like you did something wrong while you were in there, and by the fuse not blowing you have some damage to take care of, just make sure you find the real source of the problem.
