Dangerous Water Heater Flare OutThe Water Heater here was obviously an older unit and probably was ready for replacement. The problem was that the owners were living there with the problem of the unit fire was flaring out every time that it turned on. This is most assuredly a fire hazard. This would have really been dangerous if something in the garage had accidently fallen over and up against the unit. It also was missing the outer cover plate which would help to prevent some damage.
