HOT SWITCH

After driving the car for about 20 minutes and shutting the engine off, I removed the key and noticed it was warm. I then felt the ignition switch and found it to be hot enough that I was unable to hold my thumb on it with any pressure. Just wondering if this sounds like a potential for fire. Thanks.

There is a definite problem here, maybe not a fire but an electrical short that could get messy to fix, I would get this inspected ASAP.
