possibly a bad connection at one of the receptacles. If the are back stab, this is not uncommon.

The bigger question is why did the fuse blow. When you find the bad connection, repair it but be aware, the underlying problem may still be there.

Be sure to remove the fuse for the circuit you are working on except when actually checking for voltage.
