Nicole Richie recently turned 40 and she shared a small clip of her celebration to Instagram.
According to Insider “The Simple Life” star posted an Instagram video on Tuesday that showed her blowing out candles on a small birthday cake.
As she leaned over the cake, however, the ends of her hair caught fire, and laughter and cheers quickly turned to yelling.
A friend in the video is seen reaching out to Richie in an attempt to pull her hair back, but not before the fire quickly spread to the middle of her strands.
“Well… so far 40 is 🔥,” Richie captioned the video.

Though it’s currently unclear as to how Richie put out the fire, or what happened after the video was filmed, the 40-year-old star seems to be OK.
In the comment section of her Instagram post, those close to her even joked about the incident.
“That’s hot,” her husband Joel Madden wrote, referencing her and Paris Hilton’s early 2000s catchphrase.
