(CNBC) – Jay Leno is recovering from serious burn injuries following a car fire in Los Angeles over the weekend, the 72-year-old comedian and former “Tonight Show” host announced.
Leno, who hosts CNBC’s “Jay Leno’s Garage,” was working at his Los Angeles garage Saturday when an accidental flash fire started in one of his cars. He is also known for his large collection of classic and high-end vehicles.
Leno was taken to the Grossman Burn Center in West Hills after the flames burned the left side of his face, but did not penetrate his eyes or his ear, a person close to Leno told NBC News. He canceled a Las Vegas performance that was scheduled for Sunday night, as well as all of his engagements for the duration of the week.
Leno is “physically ok,” but confirmed there is “some damage” to the comedian, a person close to Leno told NBC.
