dryer vent

937 2
ever seen anything like this? Dryer vent changed over to that thin aluminum paper like flex vent. Basically disintegrated.

A bad GFCI in another part of the house had all the water lines energized.
I think it arced from the copper to the vent and disintegrated.

It was new, so there was not any lint to catch fire.

Ive seen pipe hangers get toasty from an energized water line but that is a first for me!:eek:
