I am very sorry to hear this, I would be sick to my stomach.
Bad thing to learn by experience, but if anything electronic gets wet, the last thing you should do is try to turn it on to see if it works without letting it dry out first..... I would venture to say you likely fried it. If you can, remove an end or cover and set in front of a fan for a day or two, put it back together, and cross your fingers. If it's a flourescent, you may have just popped the ballast, which is replaceable, but can be pricey depending on the fixture.
