On Thursday April 16th at 0744, Stations 36 and 37 were dispatched to Merrit Drive to perform a fire investigation after the homeowner reported seeing a flame from an outlet when unplugging a device.  Chief 37 arrived on scene and assumed command from the Fire Marshals so Assistant 36 and FM 10B could enter the structure to investigate.  Interior crews found a scorched outlet and a heat signature in the wall.  Power was secured to the outlet and the wall was checked for extension with negative findings.  Homeowner was advised to have an electrician check the wiring and replace the outlet.  All units cleared the scene at 0805.
