Michael Jackson

FIRE

At Neverland Ranch

0814_neverland_ranch_article_gettyA grease-filled barbeque torpedoed a big party at Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch this AM.

A large group was there for the shindig, when the staff lit the BBQ to get the coals hot.  We're told a grease build-up on the system ignited the hood system and caused some panic. 

Three engines from the Santa Barbara County Fire Dept. arrived but the blaze had already been put out.

The BBQ was cancelled.

El Pollo Loco anyone?

Here we go, I can see it now... Somehow, everyone of the Jackson siblings (who weren't even there at the time BTW), are gonna sue the estate for Phantom Whiplash, Mental Aguish, Sexual Battery, and god knows what else, because some Ding Dong flicked his BIC on the gas with the door closed... Just my opinion, no charge.... Darrell....

Hey Harvey and company, did you post up this non-story so that no one would notice that you REMOVED, YET AGAIN, another Janet Jackson story? Did her legal Pitt bull hit you up or did the Estate tell you to STFU?

lmao. I was responding to the story on Janet Jackson and the MJ estate when the page suddenly disappeared! It appears that Janet is not about to let Branca and McClain roll over her like they did poor Michael. Go, Damita Jo!!!

Yup. Not only did TMZ remove the Janet Jackson story, all of our comments have been removed as well.

Someone at TMZ sure is intimidated by her legal team.

This should be fun!!!!

TMZ took down the Estate paying Janet for Katherine´s stays.
A call from Janet´s lawyers?

This is not a story.
