The consumer says the night light apparently shorted. It is blackened on the inside and it blew the circuit breaker. The consumer says it was discovered by the odor of the hot plastic.

It smoked around one prong and blackened the outlet under the plug and on the wall.

The consumer says he doesn't recall how long the light was on for but it was not very long. It had been in the same location for quite a while.
