Bert, that was my [non-expert] opinion as well.

After looking at the picture again, I also wonder if case may have
arced through to the concrete (and rebar) below. The case insulation
on these caps is only good for perhaps 10 kVDC (less with RF). The
caps really should be on an insulated cutting board or similar thick
polymer plate to prevent possible corona damage and arc-through.
