Major equipment damage here caused by an overcurrent condition?

This image comes from the Southern California area, and was on a CD I exchanged with an Instructor some time ago, so I don't have the particulars here.

It looks like that rack went up in flames.....the wall in the back looks scorched.

If they had shut it down, there wouldn't be any light to take the picture!

Regardless of the wording on the tape, I imagine there is substantial physical risk around the area. Likely the electrician taped it off and that's all he had.

Whew—my cubicle’s AOL access and coffee pot still work. I say the $60,000 I saved the plant on that silly thermographic scanning last month is so much the better!

Thomas: the yellow tape looks like it says "High Voltage", however it is upside-down and must therefore mean "Low voltage".
