|what happened to my carpet?

So, in my new house a lot of the rooms have carpet, pretty much your standard cut-pile light beige carpet. My family has lived here just over three months. While I was vacuuming this past weekend, I noticed two gray spots on the carpet next to my side of the bed in the master bedroom. I tried to scrub at them with a damp cloth and discovered that fibers are melted and in some case black on the tips. Two little spots, like the size of a large man's thumbprint. They feel kind of crunchy to the touch.|
I guess something slightly melted or scorched these two tiny spots. I haven't lit a candle in that room ever. I don't have any hot things in the room, other than a heating pad which has been unplugged and stowed for months. Nobody has ever smoked in the house since we moved here, and possibly never before then either. I haven't spilled anything other than water in that room. My 14-year-old insists he has no idea what messed up the carpet. My husband ignored my question when I asked him (this is normal for him, it doesn't mean anything more than he didn't bother to answer).
I give up, TQC - what happened to the carpet?
