Did you get the news yet?! Lil Wayne's long-awaited sentencing on a gun charge has been postponed yet again, this time due to a fire today in the basement of Manhattan Criminal Court!

According to the FDNY, a small blaze broke out at 10:29 a.m., setting off smoke detectors and prompting a full evacuation of the building. It was brought under control by 11:55 a.m. Five firefighters, two civilians and one prisoner sustained minor injuries, but only one was taken to a hospital.

"It's not deemed suspicious, but the fire marshal is investigating the possibility the fire started thanks to some construction in one part of the courthouse,"
the department rep said.

The blaze, which broke out in the court's boiler room, resulted in the building being evacuated and closed for the rest of the day.

They say Lil Wayne will now begin his jail term tomorrow (March 3).

In any case, it further postpones a trip to jail for the 27-year-old Lil Wayne, real name Dwayne Carter III. He's facing a yearlong sentence at Rikers Island for weapons possession.

Weezy was originally supposed to be sentenced last month, but Judge Charles H. Solomon granted him a delay for emergency dental surgery. Since then, the Grammy-winning MC's posse has thrown him several send-offs, and he recorded a couple of goodbye videos for his fans.

Lil Wayne's lawyer, Stacey Richman, could not immediately be reached for comment.
