Can Brillo pads be stuffed in the hole where the oven hooks up to keep out mice or is that a hazard?


I am currently fighting a mouse problem and am searching for all access points possible to close up. I noticed the hook up area to my oven, has more room than the coils need for hook up. Mouse poop was all around this area so I am sure that is likely an entrance source. I have always been told to close holes up with Brillo pads because mice do not like to chew through the metal, but I didn't know if this particular area would become a fire hazard if I stuffed the Brillo pad around the coils.
