The very first thing you have to do is kill the power to that outlet at the breaker or fuses. If you don't have a meter to check it, plug a radio in, turn it on, then start pulling fuses or tripping breakers until the raido goes off. If the plug has arced and welded itself into the socket, you may be better off replacing the outlet and starting all over again. If you don't know anything about electricity, get someone with the training and equipment to do the job safely.
