Fire found during a home inspection!

Updated: Mar 23

Routine inspection of the heating elements inside an electric water heater. When I started pulling the lower cover off it felt pretty warm. As I pulled the cover off it was noticeably hot and then I could see a flame. The insulation was blackened and burning! YIKES...I shut the electrical service off to the water heater and notified the owners.
