The owner of a rental home was called to the residence due to an odor of smoke. The source of the smoke was attributed to the furnace.

The owner conducted a safety inspection and found that the electrical insulation on wires in the ceiling light fixtures had deteriorated as a result of heat damage. The insulation was discolored, cracked and decomposed so bare conductors were exposed on the wires connected to the lamp sockets. The lamps were fitted with the proper sized bulbs and were installed and maintained according to the manufacturer's instructions.

Damage was confined to the lamp fixtures. There were no injuries. The lamp fuxture was purchased at a Lowe's store during 2010.
