Repairing a Ceiling Fan Pull Chain Switch

Electrical Repair Question: We recently had a new ceiling fan installed by our spare bedroom by a licensed electrician. When our daughter came home from college, she pulled on the cord to get the fan going and a small flash of fire and some smoke came out and scared us half to death. We immediately turned the wall switch off and everything stopped, but there is a strong electrical burning smell. What could be wrong?
