Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne had to flee their English country mansion last week after a fire broke out in the living room, a British newspaper reported Thursday.

The couple were alerted by a fire alarm and ran into their backyard when the blaze broke out late Friday at their house in Buckinghamshire county, northwest of London, the Sun tabloid said.

A spokeswoman for Buckinghamshire Fire Service confirmed that two fire engines had been sent to a blaze at a house in the area. Two men and a woman were treated for minor smoke inhalation, she said.

Fire officials were investigating the cause of the blaze.

The fire was the latest in a series of domestic mishaps to befall the former Black Sabbath frontman and his manager-wife, who is a judge on the TV talent show “The X Factor.”

Last November, Ozzy Osbourne unsuccessfully tackled a thief as he raided the house and stole a large amount of jewelry. And in December 2003, Osbourne was in a coma for eight days after breaking his collarbone, several ribs and a neck vertebra in a quadbike accident on the grounds of the home.
