Red Hot: Christina Hendricks' Clothing Catches Fire at Tony Awards

Flame-haired "Mad Men" star Christina Hendricks was literally sizzling hot at the Tony Awards afterparty when she caught fire and burst into flames, the New York Post reported Thursday.

The actress got too close to a candle at the glitzy gathering and set her spring trench coat on fire, fellow guests said.

The party was held at Sunday at New York hotel The Carlyle, where the Empire Suite was decked out with burning candles.

Hendricks, 36, managed to extinguish the fire -- but it burned a huge hole in the coat, which she ended up throwing away.

Other celebrities at the party included Bono, Lily Rabe, Matthew Broderick, Helen Reddy, Tovah Feldshuh and Jackie Hoffman.
