The couple was staying at Cooper's mother's house watching the presentation ceremony on TV when a fire broke out from the fireplace, according to TMZ.
Four fire trucks from the Abington Fire Department arrived minutes later at about 10:15 p.m. and extinguished the fire that was contained in one room, the Philadelphia Daily News reported.
"It was not a very major fire," a Jenkintown Police Department supervisor told the Hollywood Reporter. "We didn't have to use hoses. It was out within a few minutes. Pretty much the fireplace got a little out of control."
The supervisor said that no one was injured or sent to the hospital.
