I was baking in the upper oven (GE double oven built in; Model JKP44GOPABG; Serial DL6417540) when I noticed a bright light in the bottom of the oven. The element on the bottom of the oven was burning and sparking. I turned the oven off and turned off the electricity by throwing the circuit breaker but the element continued to burn and throw off sparks for another half hour. Quite a bit of noxious smoke was released into the kitchen. I believe that a fire or electrical short in an oven is a potentially dangerous situation.
