RedFoo hopes no one's injured during the incident, and tweets that though being interrupted by the fire, he still thinks the concert was an 'epic' one.
LMFAO were quick to respond to the news about their concert in Honduras which was caught on fire. On behalf of his band, member Redfoo took to Twitter soon after the show to wish everyone safe. Indeed, no one was killed or seriously injured, but at least 15 concertgoers were reported to have been treated for smoke inhalation.
The band allegedly were in the middle of pumping up the crowd with their electro/dance beat when being informed that fire broke out and began to fill Coliseo Nacional de Ingenieros, the venue where they're performing. "They told us that there was a fire when we were on stage. Then we went to the dressing rooms and there was smoke in the halls," he explained.
For a safety reason, RedFoo and his nephew bandmate SkyBlu were said immediately stopping the gig. According to TMZ, cops investigating the incident suspected that the fire was intentionally set to the electrical system by a "criminal hand." It's unclear if any arrests have been made though.
Despite the incident, the group seemed to have had a good night. "Epic concert tonight!!!! Everybody in Honduras, we set the place on fire!!!! #sorryforpartyrocking ...yeah baby," RedFoo tweeted before quickly adding, "On a serious note. Hope everybody is safe from the fire tonight! love you Honduras!"
Also, the duo are celebrating their return to No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100. After settling at No. 2 for seven weeks, they finally moved to No. 1 with their single "Sexy and I Know It", beating Rihanna's "We Found Love" which previously reigned the chart for eight consecutive weeks.
The "Sexy and I Know It" becomes LMFAO's second number-one hit, following the success of "Party Rock Anthem" which ruled the list earlier this summer for six weeks. This make them the first duo to have two successive chart-topping singles since OutKast's "Hey Ya!" and "The Way You Move".
