Oil furnace problem

I was trying to restart my oil furnance and it wasn't restarting with the reset button, so I pulled this plug on the high speed flame retention and when it came out it sparked and then the power went out in my house. How can I fix this problem?

    All the power in the entire house went out because of one action??

    Might be time to call a pro. There's a lot of different ways to hurt yourself or start a fire.

    That summary was a little vague, but if sparks were involved, you need to call a pro. Set it up for tomorrow or you'll likely pay overtime rates today.
    You lost power to the whole house?
    It should have just tripped the breaker for the boiler only.

    As has been said -- you need a pro for the burner. You also may need an electrician, if the whole house tripped. In fact, if it did, you do.
