Gary Lightbody and members of his band Snow Patrol were forced to flee their New York hotel room in the middle of the night after its roof caught on fire.
Writing about last weekend’s incident on his blog, Gary (35) said: “So the roof of the hotel caught fire tonight.
“The alarm went off as it is wont to do and we all trundled outside to be greeted by 10 fire trucks and about 60 firemen — an impressive sight.
“No one was injured so we had a stoop party for an hour and a bit.”
The band is currently on a US tour in support of their latest album, Fallen Empires, which debuted at No.5 on the Billboard chart in January.Snow Patrol - New York
