165 Dead and 200 injured due to Aluminum Wiring

A total of 165 persons died and over 200 were injured as a result of aluminum wiring. The Beverly Hills Supper Club fire in Southgate, Kentucky, is the third deadliest nightclub fire in U.S. History. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) staff investigated and determined the fire and deaths were attributed to aluminum wiring.

Unfortunately, failing aluminum-wired connections seldom provide easily detected warning signs. Aluminum-wired connections and splices have been reported to fail and overheat without any prior indications or problems.If you notice any signs of a problem, have a qualified electrician determine the cause. DO NOT TRY TO DO IT YOURSELF. You could be electrocuted, or you could make the problem worse. Signs of electrical system problems include hot-to-the touch face plates on receptacles or switches; flickering lights; circuits that don’t work; or the smell of burning plastic at outlets or switches.
