Jay Leno burned to death in a gasoline fire at his Los Angeles auto repair shop

Leno told Variety that he just needed some time to get back on his feet after suffering “severe burns.”

LOS ANGELES — Jay Leno is recovering in hospital after being seriously injured in a fire at his Los Angeles garage.

“I received severe burns from a gasoline fire,” said the TV host and comedian said variety in a statement on Monday. “I’m doing well. It will only take me a week or two to get back on my feet.” A spokesman for the burns center where Leno was treated said CNN that his face and hands were burned by the fire in his garage.

Leno, 72, was scheduled to perform at the 2022 Financial Brand Forum in Las Vegas on Sunday night, but organizers said he was forced to cancel due to a “serious medical emergency,” according to an email sent to attendees and was received from Persons.

“His family has not been able to provide us with very many details, but there has been a very serious medical emergency preventing Jay from traveling,” the email reads. “All we know is that he is alive so our prayers go out to him and his family tonight.”

Leno is the former host of NBC’s Tonight Show and The Jay Leno Show. The Television Hall of Fame inductee is currently hosting “Jay Leno’s Garage” and the recent reboot of the classic quiz show “You Bet Your Life”. Leno is known for his passion for cars and has an extensive collection of automobiles and motorcycles.

Leno has continued to perform stand-up performances after his departure from The Tonight Show. He was scheduled to co-headline events with Jeff Foxworthy on Friday in St. Louis and Saturday in Denver. Both shows have been canceled and ticket holders are getting their money back.
