Thread title might sound weird, so here's the situation: I was playing a videogame on my TV in my living room when I saw a very brief orange flash in the corner of my eye. It,s hard to really tell what I saw exactly because I was sleepy and not directly looking in that direction when it happened but it seemed to have originated a bit above floor height behind my TV stand where my surge protector is. Immediately the first thought that came to my mind was fire so I stood up and got closer to see if anything had caught fire. Couldn't see anything wrong but still turned off and unplugged the surge protector. The TV stand had been pushed too far back so all the cables were pretty close to the baseboard convection heater on the wall behind.
But the thing is I looked at every plug that was connected to the surge protector and all of them are still bright and clean without any sign of damage. All the cables look fine, as does the surge protector. The heater was running but was just a bit warm... no signs of fire damage. I just can't figure out what happened. The surge protector does have an orange light in it's switch but I somehow doubt this could've made what seemed to be a smallish but bright orange shape. Everything still works fine as if nothing happened but i'm gonna leave the surge protector unplugged and that heater turned off for the night since having no idea what happened makes me a bit paranoid.
