Automotive: Jay Leno suffers serious burns in car fire

72-year-old Jay Leno is reportedly at a burn center after being seriously burned in a car fire over the weekend started from gasoline.

According to TMZ, the former “Tonight Show” host was in his Los Angeles garage on Sunday when one of his cars burst into flames, seemingly inexplicably. Sources told the entertainment site that the left side of Leno’s face was burned but that the flames didn’t “penetrate his eye or his ear.”

“I got some serious burns from a gasoline fire. I am ok. Just need a week or two to get back on my feet,” Leno said in a statement to NBC News on Monday.

News of Leno’s accident comes after multiple reports say he pulled out of a Las Vegas appearance at the last minute Sunday due to a “very serious medical emergency.” He was set to perform at the Financial Brand Forum 2022.

The comedian is recovering at Grossman Burn Center in Los Angeles. The specifics of his condition are unknown at this time.
