Default Got Smoke?

I did this morning! I got in, started it up, turned the defrost on, smelled burning. It's cold, couldn't tell if it was the blazer or a wood stove right away. Then there was smoke. It's nothing big, but will require minor attention. I noticed when I replaced the blower resistor that there was (and is) some insulation in the box. I did pull some out when I did the resistor, but I guess I have to pull the box open. Obviously, at one point there was something living there, dunno if they moved out, but they will.
