It seems that candles have proved to be too much responsibility for a few of Hollywood’s stars lately. Just a week after Heather Graham (You probably know her from Austin Powers and Boogie Nights) set her apartment ablaze after leaving candles & clothes too close together, and just a few days after famous DJ Skrillex lit his own hair on fire while blowing out birthday candles, we’re hearing Sharon Osbourne fell victim to a candle fueled blaze as well. What did the America’s Got Talent judge say about the incident? Keep reading to find out!
Just when you think that stars don’t live like us “Normal people”, something always happens to remind you that they’re just like you and I – that they tend to forget things – like extinguishing candles before going to bed.
Sharon Osbourne has stayed out of the headlines for quite awhile, but from what we can tell the last few days have proved quite volatile for the famous family. After Sharon and Lady Gaga’s spat earlier this week over Kelly’s behavior on “Fashion Police“, it seems that Sharon wanted some relaxation time. She lit some candles in the process, and promptly forgot about them.
Sharon woke early this morning to the sound of fire engines outside her home, and firemen rushing to get her and her family out of the Beverly Hills mansion. Local officials spoke to TMZ about the blaze, saying at 4:45 am they received a fire call from the Beverly Hills residence of the Osbourne family. Thankfully, the crews were able to extinguish the blaze rather quickly. Before leaving, however, the fire crew gave the family a refresher course on fire safety. Sharon Osbourne also spoke to TMZ about the fire, saying, “Please everybody always check all the candles lit in the house before going to bed. I didn’t, and at 5am this morning I was met with 5 gorgeous men from the BH Fire Department as they put out the fire in my house.”
Why are there so many candle related incidents lately? Let us know what you think in the comments!
