Ozzy Osbourne injured in house fire

A fire broke out at Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne's home

Ozzy Osbourne and wife Sharon are recovering after trying to tackle a fire that broke out at their Beverly Hills home.

The Black Sabbath rocker - who was already suffering an injured hand - singed his trademark long hair as he tried to put out the blaze, which was sparked when a candle exploded in its glass vase.

Sharon explained on TV show The Talk: "My eyes are stinging and my throat's closing up... something weird smelling in here, then my dogs started to bark, so I go out of the bedroom, I go downstairs and the whole living room - the candle had burst and the cracking sound was the glass in the candle exploding."

Ozzy, who had had surgery on his hand the day before and whose arm was in a cast, tried to help put it out and opened the doors, while former America's Got Talent judge Sharon went to get water.

She continued: "I go into the kitchen to get water and throw the water on it, with the doors open and the water erupted! It erupted, Ozzy's hair from here to here, gone.

"And we are like two idiots, it was like The Three Stooges. Everything you are not meant to do - go to bed with candles alight, open the doors and put water on - we did it all."

Firefighters, who Sharon joked were "gorgeous", attended and extinguished the blaze.

She later tweeted her thanks, writing: "I want to say Thank You to everyone at the Beverly Hills Fire Department for coming to our aid and taking such good care of us this morning. "

Leo:

Don't get involved with a hidden intrigue. The drama will be exciting at first, but eventually you will tire of keeping secrets. If someone is interested in you romantically, you shouldn't have to sneak around together. An oppressive work situation may tempt you to quit your job. Try not to discuss your plans with colleagues. You don't want a rival to tell your employer about your resignation until you're ready to tender it. Protect your interests at all costs.More
