A small fire caused a stir for country singer Loretta Lynn at her Hurricane Mills, Tenn., home on Tuesday.

According to the Loretta Lynn Official Facebook page, the fire started in the sun room and was put out quickly.

The fire occurred at about 9:30 a.m. when a candle fell on a chair at Lynn’s current residence on the Hurricane Mills ranch, WTVF-TV reported, not at the mansion-turned-tourist attraction where she raised her family.

WKRN-TV reported that 81-year-old Lynn burned her fingertips while putting the fire out with a pillow.

A post Lynn on Twitter said no one was hurt.

Last year, a fire burned a cook shack at the singer’s 6,000-acre ranch, according to KTVF-TV. Severe thunderstorms also caused damage to the ranch last year.

Lynn grew up in Kentucky and is known as the Coal Miner’s Daughter for the hit song, autobiography, and film of the same name. She was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1988 and presented the Presidential Medal of Freedom in November.

Lynn’s schedule includes shows in Greenville, Texas, on Feb. 28, Corpus Christi, Texas, on March 1 and Austin, Texas, on March 2.
