It is meant as a positive when it is said that a person is catching fire. Those of you who are a certain age may be able to recall the popular arcade game NBA Jam. A shooter who made three consecutive attempts during a game without that run being interrupted by an opponent making a bucket would be “on fire.” That player then literally could not miss an attempt until his hot streak was broken by a score from the opposition. Another example is a young actor “catching fire” as it pertains to his career. That person could be on the verge of stardom so long as his figurative fire is not extinguished for one reason or another.

There are, however, also stories of celebs literally catching on fire. Some could, after the fact, be considered to be humorous or even silly tales. One of those involved is a reality television star and model being at a fashion awards show when the dress that she was wearing went up in flames. Everything worked out well in that situation. Not all celebs caught up in such an event were so fortunate. There is, of course, the famous story involving the former “King of Pop” and a fire that occurred during a commercial shoot. He eventually recovered from the wounds that he suffered on that day, but it was nevertheless a traumatic experience for that celeb.

All Michael Jackson wanted to do was shoot a Pepsi commercial back in 1983. Things did not go as planned during one of the takes, and Jackson literally caught fire. While Jackson would recover from the incident, he did, as mentioned in an LA Times piece, suffer from migraines as he was healing. Video of that take has been made public, and that video clearly shows that Jackson's hair was on fire as he made his way down steps. It is amazing that Jackson was not injured even worse when he caught fire. That accident could have been fatal had disaster struck.
