Party Rocking Starts Fire During LMFAO Set; Group Headed to Times Square for NYE
A fire during an LMFAO DJ set by Red Foo stopped all party rocking on Wednesday, as fans in Honduras scrambled away from a smoked filled venue.
TMZ reports that the LMFAO frontman, near the end of his performance, had to cut things short after being told there was a fire under the stage.
According to Red Foo, smoke filled the backstage area and he was forced to leave a few small items behind.
It’s reported that the electrical system caught fire, but authorities suggest the blaze was intentional.
According to reports, there were no serious injuries, although 15 fans were treated for smoke inhalation.
Post-show, LMFAO’s Red Foo ignited his Twitter account with jokes about the situation.
"Epic concert tonight!!!! Everybody in Honduras, we set the place on fire!!!! #sorryforpartyrocking," he tweeted.
He continued in response to a fan’s question, "They told us there was a fire when we were on stage. Then we went to the dressing rooms and there was smoke in the halls.”
And added, “On a serious note, hope everybody is safe from the fire tonight! Love you Honduras!"
According to MTV, LMFAO is currently prepping for their New Year’s Eve gig at the Haze and celebrating the rise of their “Sexy and I know It” to the top spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 singles chart.
The group will also make an appearance at this year's annual "Dick Clark's Rockin' New Year's Eve with Ryan Seacrest."
