It looks like Britney Spears has learned her lesson on leaving open flames in the house.

On Wednesday, the pop star, 38, revealed she had accidentally burned down her home gym in a candle-related incident half a year ago. Filming herself working out in an Instagram video, Spears says, "I'm in my gym right now. I haven't been in here for like six months because I burnt my gym down, unfortunately."

"I had two candles and ... one thing led to another and I burned it down," she continued. "I'm in here and I only have two pieces of equipment left, and I'm going to show you guys what I do during this time."

Spears did not elaborate how much damage was done, though she said no one was hurt in the incident.

"It was an accident …. but yes …. I burnt it down 🙈 I walked past the door to the gym and flames 🔥🔥🔥🔥 BOOM !!!!!!" she captioned the workout video. "By the Grace of God the alarm 🚨 went off after that and yippy hoorah nobody got hurt 🙏🏼."

"Unfortunately now I have only two pieces of equipment left lol and a one-sided mirror gym 🙄🙄🙄 !!!!! But it could be much worse so I’m grateful," she wrote, adding, "Pssss I like working out better outside anyways 🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸 !!!!"

In the clip, Spears can be seen doing squats and lunges using dumbbells in her home gym before moving outside for some stretches on the balcony.

The "Toxic" singer has been keeping fans updated on her life under stay-at-home orders amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, posting videos of her workouts and dance sessions on her Instagram.

Recently, she shared with followers that she's lost weight while social distancing from her boyfriend, Sam Asghari.

"I have been quarantining since I got back from Louisiana weeks ago …. so basically I haven’t seen my boyfriend @samasghari in what feels like a lifetime 😭 !!!!" Spears wrote in the caption accompanying a series of photos of herself wearing a crop top.

"I have actually lost weight from missing him …. now none of my pants or shorts fit 🙄😳😳 !!!!!" she revealed . "Guess that’s what missing someone can do ❤️ …. who else is experiencing this ????!"

Spears and Asghari have been dating since 2017, after they met on the set of her “Slumber Party” music video in 2016.

The songstress shared in another post that while she has been missing Asghari, she is enjoying some solo time in her self-isolation.

"I’m not really sure how to express in words how happy I am to find solitude in my beautiful home every day 🧘🏼‍♀️🌸🌸🌳☀️ !!!!" she captioned another photo of herself wearing the same outfit. "It’s like a dream 💫."

She added, ".... I hope you are all staying safe and playing your part 💋💋💋 ..... GOD BLESS YOU ALL !!!"
