Update: Tracy Morgan's House Fire Undeniably Hilarious

Even when facing tragedy, the 30 Rock star brings the funny. That recent fire at his apartment? He put a statement out: The blaze started in his fish tank. Full of water.

In a statement the actor thanks fireman for saving his fish:

A fire broke out in my Manhattan apartment this morning, apparently starting with a lamp attached to my fish tank. The sprinklers promptly activated and the NYFD came by to make sure it was contained.. Fortunately, the fire did not spread and no one in the building was injured — even the fish are okay. My thanks to the New York Fire Department for their quick action.

A source tells us that Morgan's tank was full of sharks and eels and things. Which is hilarious. Oh, Tracy. TedSez was right.
