Can I break a lease due to unsafe conditions?

Question Details:

We just renewed our lease for another year in the housethat  we have been living in. Since that time, we have had an electrical fire above my child´s bedroom, and the electrician who came in told us the wiring in the house was "shotty" and that it was unsafe and he couldn´t gaurantee that it wouldn´t happen again. Is there a way for us to get out of the lease we signed a month ago, since we no longer feel safe in the home? According the the electrician who came out, the house would need to be completely rewired to be up to code.
