Drilling screw into wall and saw spark


I was drilling a screw into the wall and I saw a yellow spark. I immediately stopped and pulled it out. I'm guessing I hit some electrical wiring. Should I call an electrician out to inspect it??

Yes,

You could have a fire ready to happen.

You should try and determine which circuit this is on and turn it off right away.
