Mariah Carey had to be saved by firefighters when a blaze broke out her Los Angeles mansion. The pop diva was taking a nap before jetting off to the MTV Video Music Awards in Miami when flames swept through her Bel Air home. Firemen who rushed to the scene reportedly had to wake the sleeping star and alert her to the fire. A source revealed: "The firemen had to wake Mariah from a deep sleep to get her out of the burning room. "Fortunately the fire was quickly extinguished before it could spread to other rooms and do serious damage." It's thought the fire could have been started by an electrical fault, according to a report in Britain's The Sun newspaper. A spokesman for the beautiful songstress is quoted on Monsters and as saying: "There was a small fire in the Los Angeles home that Mariah is currently renting. Mariah was never in harms way. Nobody was hurt."
