Surge Protector And Electrical System

Hi not sure if this is in the right forum but if not guess it will be moved anyways if the prongs was a little wet like with a speck or 2 of water for a box fan and was plugged into a surge protector strip would it fry or damge anything on other eceptacle's that's in the same room or anywhere else in the house? the receptacle's are all on the same breaker so I'm pretty sure one receptacle runs to another. The surge protector has nothing else on it but the fan nothing happen when i plugged the fan up it works fine no burning smell or sparks and not 100% sure if the plug was wet at all! am just curious!

Despite the common myth water is not a conductor. If it was pure water there should be no harm.

A small amount of moisture is not a problem.
