Uh Oh! Miss Congo's Hair Gets Caught on Fire During Miss Africa 2018 Pageant [Video]

Miss Congo, Dorcas Kasinde, won the African beauty pageant hosted by the Cross River State Government Friday —  but unfortunately her hair got a little too close to sparklers and went up in flames.

via TMZ:

It appears the people onstage waving around celebratory sparklers to honor Miss Congo were responsible for setting her hair ablaze, but it seems like they noticed right away … and hopefully the fire did her no harm.

Kasinde reportedly beat out Nigeria’s Chiamaka Nnaemeka and Zambia’s Gladys Kayumbato take home the crown, and was awarded with $35k and a sport utility vehicle.

No word on the extent of her injuries.
