Alexis Knapp reportedly lit a candle in her home that she obviously forgot to blow out, resulting in the burning of her entire condo building.
The 25-year-old “Project X” actress started the blaze that soon took over the entire structure.
Knapp left the candle burning and it eventually ignited the huge fire.
It was finally extinguished with the help of 75 firefighters, 30 fire trucks, and three agencies.
The damage done to the building was enough to require it to be “red tagged”, indicating that it is too dangerous to be inhabited.
One firefighter was injured but thankfully no one was killed in the blaze.
Alexis is probably best known for her role as Stacie Conrad in the 2012 film “Pitch Perfect”:
She recently wrapped up filming of the sequel musical comedy, “Pitch Perfect 2”, which hits theaters May 15, 2015.
She stars alongside Anna Kendrick, Hailee Steinfeld, Elizabeth Banks, and Brittany Snow in the sequel that follows Fat Amy and Beca through their senior year at Barden University.
Alexis is gearing up to begin filming the 2015 post apocalyptic adventure film “One”.
The mother-of-one previously dated Reese Witherspoon’s ex-husband, Ryan Philippe, for a brief time and became pregnant by the actor. She gave birth to a baby girl named Kailani Merizalde Phillippe-Knapp in July 2011.
