Default Wires melting into the battery

A few weeks ago my son's Vue broke the positive wire at the terminal. Replaced the wire ends, new clamp, back up and running. The other day it stopped running while he was driving, just died going down the road. He pulled it home and looking under there the positive wire is melted into the battery deeper than the wire is thick, and there's a hissing noise coming from the fuse box under the passenger dash panel. We unhooked it, he got a new battery, we start the car and within one minute the positive wire is too hot to touch. Even the shrink wrap was starting to melt.

What might cause this?
