Holy cow, that's really scary! And the reason I never leave my irons plugged in.

I hope there was no damage other than the iron.

Wow! When you say scary you really know what you are talking about.
When I think of all of the times I have forgotten my iron and found it blinking in the
morning. ! I will definitely work out a system so that never happens again.

i never have figured out what caused that to happen.
the light also plugged into that power strip was fine.

i consider myself very lucky that it never burst into flames.
just melted and filled my sewing space with smelly fumes.

guess who tries really hard now to remember to unplug irons when not in use.

Were you there when it melted?

Or did you follow the fumes?

How did you get it out of the sewing room on a timely basis?
