Mariah Carey turns firewoman in Egypt

Tuesday May 18, 2010

When an electrical fire broke out under her feet in Egypt this week, it was Mariah Carey to the rescue.

Minutes before she was due to appear on stage for a live concert, the Butterfly singer single-handedly put out the flames with a towel.

She later told fans of the drama on her Twitter account.

"In Egypt getting ready to go on stage and suddenly there was a surge of power and an electrical fire started under my feet!" she wrote.

"Naturally, my emergency instincts kicked in and I put out the flames w/a towel."
