This box was easily accessible- until the tenant re-modeled, and moved a wall. As you can see, there are still connections inside.

Is that reddish areas fire caulking? If so, I havent seen it used on horizontal penetrations.

Yes, the red stuff is fire caulk...this was a hallway, with double layers of sheetrock.

Of course, having a j-box in the middle of the wall raises all sorts of other issues....

As luck would have it, in the course of sorting out the wiring, this j-box was eventually completely abandoned.
