Has anyone had a CFL Bulb catch fire?
This morning I smelled smoke in the living room and was surprised to find the Compact Florescent Bulb in one of the lamps was smoking profusely and was starting to catch fire. I have been replacing bulbs as they burn out with CFL’s but this has me kinda spooked. This one was an un-branded one from Home Depot. If this is common, should I start hoarding light bulbs?
