    I went out to plug in the heat lamp and the ground under my tractor was lit up. Opened up the coop and the heat lamp must have fallen down the day before. Thank goodness we did not have a chicken bonfire. Smoldered thru 3/8" plywood floor

    VERY LUCKY is right.

    Lesson to others to make sure to secure the heat lamp two ways and not depend on the clamp to hold it.

    I would consider this your get out of jail free card and not gamble again. You were very very lucky. Glad no one got hurt.

    Very lucky, could have been a lot worse! It should be an easy fix though.

    OH no that's scary. Good thing the whole coop didn't go up in flames.
