Hi Syed,
A surge protector provides short circuit protection, and there are plenty of examples of power sockets with surge protectors integrated within; mainly seen within kitchens and bathrooms.
There are also explosion proof sockets with surge protection.
Perhaps there is a new angle/layer of safety unexplored in our sockets. I would be very interested in exploring them with you.

Fire detection is interesting.
non-contact temperature sensors can be used to detect fire.
