Bare Wires and Styrofoam

Bare Wires Encased in Foam!

Bare Wires Encased in Foam!

This picture shows how someone used Styrofoam as a junction box.

If you look at the wires real close, you see that some have a great deal of copper showing.

Just imagine these bare wires getting hot and then heating that “junction box.”

Look for these unique ways of wiring on your inspections. Sometimes it takes a keen eye.

We would love to see some of the things you find.  Send them to

Keep an eye out for this stuff and make them correct it.

Stay safe and fight the good fight.

    Scary! We came across bare wires tied together in an attic once when doing a smoke investigation. Ummm it was the source of his smoke. The twist was not tight and it was arcing and heating up the insulation. Like this on the potential to turn into something really bad.
