True story

I was working in my office one night at midnight, and I have several CFL’s in addition to many fluorescent lights.

I heard a sizzling sound like bacon, looked in the direction of the sound and watch the CFL burst into flame with flames licking up onto the ceiling of my house.

Next morning I changed out every single CFL with conventional light bulbs.

As I write this memo. I’m looking at the Black flame marks on the porcelain base.

Good luck

I've had TWO catch fire.

I don't trust them.

Plus they look silly.
