Surge Pro Fire 5 Jan 2003.
An employee arrived at the Greensport Yard in Houston this morning to find
the field office full of smoke. Investigation led him to a melted down surge
protector (see photos - click to enlarge).
An office by office search revealed another surge protector, of the same brand and model
as above, that was starting to melt down (see attached photos)
The manufacturer was contacted to see if similar incidents have
occurred with this product. They stated that the surge protector had
absorbed all of the energy it was capable of absorbing and melted down as a
result. The surge protectors involved were not on a recall list.
