Default Coil burnt

hey here's a new one on me.. hope not to everybody... replaced coil 8 months ago because of occasional misfire..new mopar..all good until today.. wife pulls into drive with rough running and engine light blinking... popped the hood , noticed a small lifted crack on coil housing above right front and checked plug wires ... first one i grabbed under that crack started smoking and sizzling until front of coil around crack began to burn and bubble up with the plastic coil housing melting.. wire looks fine.. strange.. shut off motor let it cool off and now no fire at all... thoughts ? thanks

Have you ever replaced the plug wires? Bad plug wires can kill a coil.
