Oven Fail

Last night at work, I put a pork roast in the oven. It was fairly quiet, and about an hour later I heard a strange hissing sound.
I opened the oven to see arcing and fire! The heating element had broken in two.

Has anyone heard of this happening? Got any appliance malfunction stories of your own?
