Sharon Osbourne

Candle Sets Bev Hills

Home on Fire

1/17/2013 12:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

First Heather Graham ... then Skrillex ... now Sharon Osbourne has fallen victim to the terrifying fire power of CANDLES -- after falling asleep last night before extinguishing a candle in her home. 

Law enforcement sources tell us, the BHFD responded to the Osbourne home around 4:45 AM today in response to a fire -- but thankfully, they arrived before the blaze had done significant damage.

We're told the firefighters dealt with the situation -- and shared some important fire safety tips with Sharon before hitting the road ... namely, don't fall asleep with lit candles in your house.

Now Sharon has some advice for candle enthusiasts everywhere -- telling TMZ, "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."

... Blessing in disguise?

Sooooo glad you were not hurt Sharon. Candles can be very dangerous. Last May a friend of mine fell asleep after a few ****tails with a candle burning. By the time she woke up her whole apartment was in flames. She received 2nd and 3rd degree burns, was on life support for 4 days and then was disconnected due to the severity of her injuries and passed away. It could happen to any of us. PLEASE DONT BURN CANDLES AND FALL ASLEEP. It could save your life.
Am a huge fan of Sharon Osbourne and would NEVER want to see anything bad happen to such a cool lady.

Screw Sharon! She is a nasty b!tch. Her treatment of Susan Boyle was uncalled for and unforgivable. The fire is karma for being such a useless piece of human debris.

The other major cause of fires has been people falling asleep while sleeping in bed. Then the problem after that might be overloaded electrical circuits.

You can get a kitchen grease fire from having a dirty drip pan. Most people can avoid these situations. I resent how they make all the bedding and furniture fireproof with toxic chemicals now. People do make mistakes now and then, but this is rare.

Sharon- REAL candles are not good to begin with! They will eventually make your ceilings black. Buy scented LED battery operated candles with a timer! They look real, they smell nice and they last forever! All you need are batteries!
