I was on a construction site years ago, and we had a small hidden electrical fire with tons of smoke, but we could not find the source of the fire. When things settled down, and the fire chief arrived first in his car, he radio'd in for the dept. to send "The Nose" who was an older firefighter with an incredible sense of smell.

About 20 minutes later The Nose arrived, came in the front door, and started sniffing like a bloodhound on the hunt! He quickly ended up in the kitchen pantry, zero'd in on a wall, put his nose right up against the painted sheetrock, pointed to the spot, and said, "It's an electrical transformer right inside this wall."

He was accurate to about 2" [in a 10,000 s.f. house] . . .

Say no more -- The Nose Knows!

Thanks for the reminder,
