The crowd of about 600 had to be evacuated and Snoop's party was canceled, reported TMZ.

"A decorative chandelier burst into flames around 11:30 pm. We're told he was just about to take the stage," a source at Heat Ultra Lounge said.

"The blaze started after Halloween decorations on the ceiling overheated. The damage was minimal but a sprinkler system flooded the club's floor."

The party to celebrate Dogg's upcoming 44th b'day will be rescheduled.
