Sometimes when a household ran out of fuses or they got tired of replacing a fuse on an overloaded circuit, they'd put a penny in the socket and screw the burnt-out fuse back in place. Fires have been started that way.

In 1998 we actually moved into a house that still has one of these. We had it replace with a breaker box.
