Ozzy and Sharon escape from blaze in their Buckinghamshire home…

Ozzy Osbourne and SHARON OSBOURNE have revealed that they were forced to flee their mansion when a blaze broke out.

The pair were alerted when a fire alarm sounded in their Buckinghamshire home late at night on Good Friday (March 25) and ran to safety into the garden.

During the escape, the couple rescued their pets.

According to BBC News, the two were not injured in the fire but were treated for the effects of smoke inhalation.

Turning up in two fire engines, four firefighters equipped with breathing apparatus went into the home to extinguish the fire. Fire chiefs believe that the cause may have been electrical and though the extent of the fire was not immediately clear, it is believed to have caused thousands of pounds worth of damage.

Fire officers reportedly visited the couple yesterday (March 30) to give them safety advice.

The fire is the latest in a string of bad luck for the family, which has seen £2 million worth of jewellery stolen following a burglary last November at the Chalfont St Peters mansion and Ozzy Osbourne suffering a near-fatal crash on a quad bike eleven months earlier.
