    He gets angry very easily, as in he has a short temper.

    Think of it as dynamite: the fuse/wick is very short, and it doesn't take long for him to "blow up".

    Someone with a short fuse is someone who is easily enraged. Another way to say it is that he has a short temper. It takes very little provocation to get him angry. He may not appear angry at first, but it doesn't take much to make him very angry very quickly.
