Jay Leno in a car fire

Jay Leno, famously known for being a comedian and hosting The Tonight Show with Jay Leno was involved in a car fire and is seriously burned because of it TMZ reports. A source says that Jay, 72, was in a garage in LA where he stores his cars when it happened on Sunday.

Apparently, one of the cars in his garage suddenly burst into flames without any warning.

It’s reported that the star suffered extensive damage to the left side of his face where the flames hit. However, thankfully, the flames were not able to penetrate his ear or his eye. Of course, he was then taken to the Grossman Burn Center where he could be cared for. Currently, Jay Leno is at the hospital. Since being there, there have been no new updates on the status of his burns.

Of course, Jay is a big fan of cars and even has a car show on Youtube called Jay Leno’s Garage

Canceling upcoming events

Needless to say, because of this awful injury, Jay’s team has canceled any of his upcoming appearances for the week. This includes a conference he was supposed to be at on Sunday – the day the fire happened. Apparently, Jay was going to make an appearance at The Financial Brand conference. According to People, his team said that there was a “very serious medical emergency” which clearly, was an understatement.

“His family was not able to provide us very many details, but there was a very serious medical emergency that is preventing Jay from traveling,” an email about the cancellation says before anyone knew about the car fire. “All we know is that he is alive, so our prayers go out to him and his family tonight.”

Other health issues

While not as immediate as burns to his face, Jay Leno has opened up about other health issues in the past. For example, the comedian suffers from high cholesterol, which in turn, has led to him leading a bigger conversation about healthy eating.

“We really want people to see the connection, because a lot of people don’t realize high cholesterol — and if you’ve had a heart attack or stroke, you’re increasing your risk for another one,” he said back in 2019. “It’s like an earthquake, it might not destroy the house, but it certainly weakens the structure.”

Hopefully, all is well with Jay Leno and he is able to make a full recovery.
