Might be loose connection,causing wire to heat up.

This is probably a simple fix, to tighten or to replace, if you know how. Your question suggests you don't know how, so leave it to a pro. You can get dead with one slip.

Most likely a faulty / loose connection !
Or a faulty breaker !
If you are not confident enough to fix it !
Turn off the faulty breaker, so you dont burn the house down,
And call an electricain in .
