"combustible cord or tube for lighting an explosive device," also fuze, 1640s, from Italian fuso "spindle" (so called because the originals were long, thin tubes filled with gunpowder), from Latin fusus "spindle," of uncertain origin.

Meaning "device that breaks an electrical circuit" first recorded 1884, so named for its shape, but erroneously attributed to fuse (v.) because it melts.
