Light switches won't work


We changed the light switches in our kitchen. When turning the breaker back on it sparked now none of the kitchen switches work or the bathroom switch.

Not sure if the wire touched the box. It is very tight, so possibly. There are no burn marks. All the switches were replaced with the same kind of switch. The breaker is what sparked, not the switch
