The cast of VH1′s “Couples Therapy” was evacuated Wednesday after a fire broke out in the house where they are living, reports TMZ.

A 911 call was placed around 4:45 p.m. Wednesday reporting the blaze, but by the time firefighters arrived, the production crew had already managed to put out the flames. The fire department checked out the scene and gave it the all clear before leaving.

Sources tied to the show tell TMZ the fire was caused by a production light that had burned a couch.

No one was injured in the incident. Production is expected to resume Friday.

Among this season’s couples seeking therapy on the reality show are rapper Flavor Flav and his fiancĂ©e Liz Trujillo, who was rushed to the hospital earlier this week.

The incident was initially reported as an overdose, but sources now say Trujillo was hospitalized briefly for “exhaustion” after a long night of filming the show. A rep dismissed the OD reports as inaccurate: “The claim of an overdose, or any involvement of drugs, could not be further from the truth.”
