Lightbulb Socket Sparked and Smoked?

After the lightbulb blew, it smoked and sparked. I removed that bulb and put in another with the same occurrence. Now I can't get the bulb out. Does light need new fixture for bulb?

I use a tweezer to get between the bulb and socket to unscrew it.

Warning: Be sure that the light fixture's power is turned off to avoid electrocution.

Cut a potato in half, then press one half firmly into the socket and twist as you would to unscrew a bulb. The pitato half will capture the remaining bulb fragments.
