Receptical Short


Check other electrical boxes nearby for a short.
Any chance a nail went through the cable. The poof sounds like a short in the wiring.
Look for a junction box that contains the cables from both circuits.

Does the breaker in question turn anything else off?
No. It turns off 2 other recepticals around the deck.
