HOLY SMOKES!!!

I encountered this outlet while on a service call to install a ceiling fan. The client casually said "Why don't you have a look at that one, too." They said they stopped using it because it had been giving them problems in the past. But it was still hot and waiting to start a fire when I got there. Amazing! This is a very good example of why they made AFCI circuit breakers mandatoryfor all bedroom circuits in the Chicago Electrical code.
