Problem with electric wiring

110 outlet has been replaced and still no current in single wire to outlet. All breakers in box have been tripped twice, still not current. What next and if it is the wire is there an immediate danger of fire.

Re: Problem with electric wiring

Are you sure the outlet isn't wired to a wall switch that is off?
Or is it wired correctly? black on brass and white on silver and the tabs aren't broken..
If not call an electrician

Could be another outlet that feeds this one or a GFCI outlet on the circuit that needs reset.
