junction box near heating oil tank
Hi! My parents just had their heating oil tank replaced in their basement, but while removing the old tank, the heating company knicked a 14-2 cable that runs in the wall, just above the tank. Can I just cut the cable and install a junction box wherever I find convenient and make it accessible, or because it would be over a tank of combustible do I need to make my juction box some distance away from the tank?
I would prefer replacing the entire length of cable, but the other end is not easily accessible without damaging the walls. Thanks.
