One of the Causes of Lost Telephone Dial Tone

I had no dial tone. When I checked the phone jack it was filled with a rubbery substance where phone clicks in and behind it inside the “box”. Is this common? Should I be worried this might cause a fire? I have contacted the phone company and I was told not to worry, but I wanted another opinion.
