Improper wiring techniques or just really old and worn-out wiring can cause a spark that leads to an inferno. Junction boxes are designed to contain flames to an extent, but once something catches, it's big-time trouble. Cut power to your entire home at the main switch located near your main box, usually found on the outside. Use a Class C or multipurpose extinguisher to put out the flame. If you don't have one (you should), then try dumping a good amount of baking soda on the fire. Contact your insurance company to determine if any damage is covered and bring in an electrician to examine the wiring to determine what went wrong and to take corrective action.
