Call the police: Call the emergency number to notify the fire department and power company for professional help.

Do not use water to extinguish electrical fires: Never use water to extinguish electrical fires as they may pose a shock hazard. Use appropriate fire extinguishing equipment, such as carbon dioxide fire extinguishers.

Evacuate: If the fire cannot be controlled or thick smoke is released, evacuate the building immediately to ensure your own safety. Follow an emergency evacuation plan.

Don’t Attempt to Repair: Never attempt to repair a meter box or electrical fault yourself, this should be handled by an experienced electrician.

Wait for professionals: After the fire is extinguished, wait for the power company or electrician professional to check and repair the fault to ensure the safety of the electrical system.
