DJ set cut short after venue's electrical system caught fire and at least 15 fans suffered smoke inhalation.

LMFAO's Red Foo was forced to cut short a Wednesday night DJ set in Honduras after a fire broke out, filling the venue with smoke and sending fans scrambling for the exits.
According to TMZ, Red Foo was nearing the end of his performance at the Coliseo Nacional de Ingenieros in the capital city of Tegucigalpa when the venue's electrical system reportedly caught fire, filling the venue with smoke. According to reports, no one was seriously injured, though at least 15 fans were treated for smoke inhalation. Local television reports showed fans being escorted from the venue and receiving oxygen. Honduran authorities suggested the fire was intentionally set, though at press time, it was not clear if anyone had been arrested in connection with the blaze.
Immediately following the abrupt end to the show, LMFAO's Redfoo took to his Twitter account, joking, "Epic concert tonight!!!! Everybody in Honduras, we set the place on fire!!!! #sorryforpartyrocking." He then responded to a fan about the fire, writing, "They told us there was a fire when we were on stage. Then we went to the dressing rooms and there was smoke in the halls."
He then changed his tone, writing, "On a serious note, hope everybody is safe from the fire tonight! Love you Honduras!"
Through LMFAO's label, Interscope, Redfoo gave this account to MTV News: "All of a sudden, right in the middle of 'Beatockin,' my manager Ian Fletcher shouted, 'There's a fire under the stage. We have to go!'
"I didn't want to go!" he continued. "I didn't realize how serious it was. The security escorted us out the venue. We were forced to leave a few items behind, nothing irreplaceable.
"I hope everybody is safe," he added. "Honduras fans are true party rockers! This will go down in history as one if craziest Redfoo DJ sets ever."
Less than 24 hours removed from the fire, the hard-partying duo were pressing on, celebrating the ascension of their hit "Sexy and I Know It" to the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart (knocking off Rihanna's "We Found Love") and prepping for a New Year's Eve gig at the Haze nightclub in Las Vegas, where, hopefully, nothing will catch fire.Related Artists
With their status as a couple becoming public knowledge after being spotted on a basketball date at a Kansas Jayhawks game this past Thursday, Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis seem to be embracing the recent "outing" of their relationship.
The "House" hottie and the SNL funnyman were spotted arm-in-arm as they strolled the streets of New York City during a New Year's Day coffee run on Sunday (January 1), with the sighting following a PDA-packed Big Apple excursion the previous afternoon.
The now "official" pair were first rumored to be on the path towards coupledom back in early December, at which time a source told Us Weekly magazine, "She's [Olivia] been coming to the (SNL) studio at Rockefeller Center, and they've gone out to dinner after rehearsals.?
Miss Wilde's latest love interest comes after she'd been mentioned in numerous hookup tales following her March 2011 divorce from ex-husband, Italian prince Tao Ruspoli.
Sudeikis is also a divorcee, as he was previously married to "30 Rock" writer Kay Cannon while having ended the six years of wedlock in 2010.

Sources say a 'massive fight' led to Brand's divorce filing Friday.
By Jocelyn Vena
On Friday, Russell Brand filed for divorce from his pop-star wife, Katy Perry, after only a year of marriage. With the new year on the horizon, more details about what led to their split are emerging.
Sources told Us Weekly that the couple always fought, but in the time leading up to the divorce filing, the arguments had gotten more heated, leading to one "massive fight."
"She was like, 'F--- you. I'm going to do my own thing.' Russell replied, 'Fine, f--- you too,' " the source explained.
Meanwhile, other sources close to the couple told E! News that the twosome had spent "a lot of time apart" as of late and that they have been having a number of "problems." TMZ further reports that those separate vacations were planned so that neither party would be in L.A. when the papers were filed.
The couple had been having problems for some time, and after trying to make it work, TMZ sources add that "it just wasn't there" anymore. Brand eventually filed for divorce first due to Perry's strong religious beliefs and background.
Other reports suggest that Brand and Perry may have had differing views about how they wanted to live their lives. The Daily Mail reports that recovering drug addict Brand didn't approve of Perry's friends (like fellow pop star Rihanna). He had reportedly asked her to "tone it down."
The split may be surprising for some given that in the past few weeks, the former couple had gushed about one another in various interviews. When Brand stopped by "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," he steadfastly denied that he and Perry had plans to divorce. "There are always rumors, aren't there? In the end, you have to just not engage with Internet technology, which is difficult, because a lot of the nude-women websites I quite enjoy," he joked.
"I've treated the whole Internet now like it's a wicked little liar," he added. "Yeah. I am really happily married. I'm married to Katy. Perpetually, until death do us part was the pledge."
In fact, when MTV News spoke to Perry at rehearsals for her "Saturday Night Live" hosting gig earlier this month, she noted that she was getting lots of advice from her soon-to-be ex-husband. "My husband, of course, every day I call him and I'm like, 'This happened,' and he's like, 'I know what that means, and here's the next play-by-play for tomorrow,' so he's gotten me really prepared for this week, thankfully."
Whatever happens next for these two in 2012, the comedian noted in a statement that he hoped to remain friends with Perry. "Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I will always adore her and I know we'll remain friends." Perry has remained mum since the news broke.
The couple kicked off their love affair at the 2009 VMAs when Brand was hosting and Perry was on hand as one of the night's performers. They later got engaged in India during a New Year's vacation months later. The pair married in a lavish affair in India in 2010. News of their split comes days after they sparked split rumors when they were seen separately over the Christmas holiday sans wedding rings.
