pull junction box further out?

On replacing a receptacle, I found a junction box that seems to be hidden further back than it should be.
There seem to be a layer of wood panel (removed in the pic), a layer of drywall and then the receptacle.
Should I be cutting out the drywall and pulling this further out or is it fire safe as it is?

No, use an extension ring.
