HELP! Bathroom exhaust fan emergency!

My newly instaled bathroom exhaust fan is leaking all over the place. Went up in the attic and the piping has condensation all over the place. Talk about a fire hazard. Could someone plz let me know how to fix this? QUICK!!!!

Wrap the duct with insulation (R-13) and your problems should be over. Your attic is cool this time of year, and you are exhausting warm, moist air thru it. That temp. diff. is what's causing the condensation. I don't see it as much of a fire hazard, but if it continues, the moisture from the condensation will ruin your attic insulation and the ceiling sheetrock.
