Cleaning lady saw smoke on the inside wall. On the OUTSIDE wall is my dogs room. I have a heater for them plugged into a short extension cord plugged into the wall.

Apparently the smoke was from the outlet in the dogs room and it tripped the GFI. came home.... Found this. Changed the outlet and reset the GFI.

Think it could have been from the short extension cord?

Anything I can do to prevent it from happening again?



Looks like terminator 2. But electrical outlet.

Dog room?
Last owners built a room for the dogs on the back of the house. It's pimp. Not insulated and no hvac doe. So they get a little heater in the winter and AC unit in the summer.

Don’t you think that’s a little...excessive?

They say dogs always resemble their owners.
