London: Singer Mariah Carey says she is good at crisis management and recently controlled a fire breakout during a show in Egypt.

"In Egypt, getting ready to go on stage and suddenly there was a surge of power and an electrical fire started under my feet," Carey posted on her tweet after the Monday accident.

"Naturally, my emergency instincts kicked in and I put out the flames with a towel."

Contactmusic.com reports that a similar incident took place last year when Carey was caught in a fire with husband Nick Cannon. The singer was celebrating St. Valentine`s Day when a fire broke out in their master bedroom.

"He (Nick) had given me an enormous amount of roses, so I picked up the vase and poured out the roses, and went back and forth from the bathroom putting out the flames with water... I`m good in a crisis," she added.
