The Office star Jenna Fischer is recuperating after fracturing her back in four places from a fall down a set of stairs.

"She avoided anything scary near the spine and she'll make a full recovery in time to shoot season four of The Office this summer," her publicist told the New York Daily News's Rush & Molloy column.

The accident reportedly took place Tuesday in the downtown Manhattan bar Buddakan, where a TV upfront party for Fischer's NBC sitcom was being held. (The actress, 33, plays Pam Beesley on the show.)

Fischer's friend and costar Angela Kinsey "has been with her the whole time," the rep told USA Today, adding that Fischer's husband, actor-filmmaker James Gunn (Slither), has arrived to be at her side.

Fans are already leaving dozens of get-well messages for Fischer on her MySpace page, wishing her a speedy recovery. Says one, "You've got a lot of people lookin' out for ya. Keep strong, Jenna!"
