Is this major or minor?

Last night a faint buzzing noise from the bathroom ceiling fixture awoke me.

I flipped the switch off to see if that would resolve the problem, but upon flipping it back on there was nothing......buzzing was obviously gone, but the lights don't work now.

I was almost afraid to leave the house unattended this morning because now I fear something major is going on..

FYI - house is 64 yr old, not sure of the age of the wiring. The lightbulbs are new, so I don't think that is the problem.

I'd certainly try replacing the bulbs again to see if that is the problem, however unlikely it seems.

Is there anything else without power other than just this one light fixture? How about the bathroom receptacle? How about other lights in nearby rooms?

If you are nervous about leaving the house, shut off the breaker before you leave and nothing bad can happen.
