Need some advice here.
Last night, on returning home, the house was filled with a burning plastic smell. However, no fire was in evidence, all electrical appliances were turned off (if applicable), and all were operational. No breakers were tripped. I thought the smell might have been from some lilies that my daughter picked and threw them out. We went to bed.
This morning the smell is still there, and, if anything, is stronger than last night. I am at a loss of where its coming from. Nothing in the crawlspace, all electrical appliances work fine.
But it can’t be good. It smells like shorted out wires. Any advice from the teeming millions? I am going to call an electrician, but in the absence of an obvious electrical issue not sure exactly what they can do.
