Does anyone know why an incandescent light bulb might explode.
Yesterday while inspecting a house, one light bulb in a ceiling fan/light exploded. The light had been on about 3 minutes. It was a clear 60w bulb. Of the four lights, only one did. The bulb popped out about 1 foot leaving the base and part of the glass (about 1/2 inch) still in the socket.
