    By "wire" I assume you mean the wires in the white USB charging charging cable that came Apple charger for the iPad. It sounds like cable must have been damaged and the wires shorted causing enough current to flow to burn the wires.

    Assuming the charger module itself isn't damaged, you can probably just buy a replacement cable.

    The question I would ask is, "why did the wire burn?" as it was probably caused by a short of the adapter. If I were in your shoes, I would by a whole new kit, adapter and cable, just to be on the safe side.

    Best to be honest dad would rather replace a charger than a house caused by a fire.
