Lionel Richie's daughter, Nicole Richie just celebrated her 40th Birthday and it was definitely lit! I've never thought about a Birthday cake being dangerous but now I'll pay extra attention the next time I go to blow out my candles. Video caught the moment Nicole bent down to make a wish and blow out her candles when her hair caught fire. That's NOT the way you want to start the new Birthday year off! Thankfully, Nicole's friend who was standing nearby was able to get the fire out and Nicole seems to be fine today... just rocking some new singed hair.
