Dead Outlet Old Home
I have an old home from the 40's. The kind with two prong outlets with those wires that have the black braiding on them. Anyway, I was changing a light fixture in my room. I had the light switch turned off, however when I was screwing in the bracket to the junction box there was a big spark. Now I have a dead outlet. The light works and the other outlet in my room still works. Just the one is dead. The circuit breaker isn't tripped and I have changed the outlet but still its dead. So what happened, is my house going to burn down, and how do I fix the outlet?
