    It done blew up......

    Hard to tell, but stuff happens and it's highly likely it had nothing to do with you.

    That looks like a malfunction or possibly a lightning strike

    I had an outdoor GFCI receptacle that looks just like that. Practically burned up inside the box, no reason for it either; it was properly mounted in a weatherproof enclosure and it didn't even have anything plugged into it when it happened. If it wasn't for the strong odor it gave off, I wouldn't have even known anything was wrong.
    Just chalked it up to stuff happens I guess, but lucky my house didn't catch fire.
    So, are you willing to put forth a little effort or are you happy sitting in your skeptical poo pile?
