A father and one of his children were killed and the mother and two other children severely injured in a house fire which the fire marshal’s investigation disclosed was caused by over-fusing of a particular Fuse Box.


A simple stick-on warning on the fuse box could have alerted the family to avoid this danger. Suit was brought against the installer and the servicers of the wiring and fuse box system for negligent failure to warn of the grave dangers associated with overfusing.
