Paulina Gretzky, the daughter of all-star professional hockey player Wayne Gretzky, nearly went up in flames at a California bar earlier this week.

Gretzky was sitting near a fire pit at The Tipsy Goat bar in Thousand Oaks, Calif., when she turned to throw a cigarette into the pit and her sweater caught fire, TMZ Sports reported. Within moments, Gretzky's sweater was reportedly in flames.

Paulina, along with several Good Samaritan bar patrons, immediately ripped off her sweater, while others jumped in to help extinguish the flames, according to TMZ.

Gretzky was reportedly not injured and is doing fine.

TMZ also reported that the 24-year-old California-born Gretzky had previously been kicked out of The Tipsy Goat bar, after dancing next to the very same fire pit.

A model and pop singer, Gretzky made her modeling debut on the August 2005 cover of Flare and appeared in the movie "Alpha Dog." Her song "Collecting Dust" was featured on MTV's reality series "Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County.”

Gretzky will be Maxim magazine's December cover girl.

In August, Gretzky announced her engagement to PGA golfer Dustin Johnson via Twitter.

The couple made their relationship public in January when Johnson, 29, played in the Tournament of Champions in Kapalua, Hawaii, according to the New York Daily News. Johnson won the tournament, earning $1.1 million.

Gretzky previously dated Los Angeles Kings player Jarrett Stoll before dating Johnson.
