LOS ANGELES, CA. (THECOUNT) — Nicole Richie set her own hair ablaze during her 40th birthday party while blowing out the candles.

Richie posted a video to social media Tuesday showing herself blowing out the candles on a cake when suddenly her hair went up in flames.


The fire seemed to quickly spread to the other side of her head before the short video abruptly ends.

No word on if the actress was injured during the unfortunate birthday blaze. Imagine if there was actually 40 candles!
