Love, 46, burned her hand when she attempted to put out a flaming curtain in her West Village townhouse early Thursday morning, according to the FDNY. She was not taken to the hospital.

The small fire at Love’s $27,000 per month townhouse on West 10th Street was brought under control shortly before 3 a.m. When firefighters arrived at the scene, the fire was mostly under control, according to the FDNY.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, but investigators say the likely cause was a candle since bedroom curtains and bed linens were burned, 1010 WINS’ reported.

Love, the lead singer of the rock band Hole, was once married to late Nirvana lead singer Kurt Cobain. They have a daughter Frances.

    She’ll be ok. Just drop another hit album. Or the insurance claim will cover the loss. Probably the insurance claim, less so another hit album

    It was probably started by an unattended crack-pipe….you know, when she nodded off.
