"ER24 paramedics arrived at 10:42 on Saturday morning along with several other services. The two men, believed to be in their 30s, had sustained burns while opening the electrical box," ER24 spokesperson Ross Campbell said in a statement on Sunday.

The pair were transported to a private hospital for further medical care.
