ONN 3 OUTLET WALL TAP, BLACK,WITH SURGE PROTECTOR BUILT IN,

Onn 3 outlet power outlet tap malfunctioned causing the unit to arc within the outlet receptacle. Caused external burns to the wall outlet, melted the wall outlet, damaged the wall outlet plate, as well as caused severe burns to the prongs of the unit in which an indent and corrosion occurred on the device itself from the malfunction. The device malfunction caused the outlet to burn out. Onn Device was being used to connect two lamps to the wall outlet. This was the only device plugged into the wall receptacle. Avoided injury, however would not have if the outlet wasn’t the first in a circuit which made it so that a device on the other side of the room wouldn’t work that was plugged into a different outlet. It was during my investigation trying to find out if there was perhaps a GFI reset somewhere that I didn’t remember that I discovered it turned out to be that this device had began to burn and arc causing the wall outlet to actually melt and burn as well. The unit when still plugged in was crackling and buzzing inside of it separate from the wall outlet and the surge protection light was still lit as if it was functioning properly but wasn’t. The outside of the device had no preexisting damage or misuse. But following there is also melting on the back of the product where some of the raised lettering had been singed off partially. Had we been out or asleep when this occurred, a catastrophic loss of property and life would have possibly been imminent.
