Jay Leno hospitalized after gasoline fire

Leno was taken to a burns ward after the accident, forcing him to cancel a number of upcoming performances, including in Las Vegas.

Former Tonight Show host Jay Leno recently canceled an appearance due to a medical emergency after a gasoline fire took him to the hospital.

“I sustained some serious burns from a petrol fire. i’m ok It just takes me a week or two to get back on my feet,” Leno said in a statement via Variety.

Leno representatives did not immediately respond to IndieWire’s request for comment.

Leno was scheduled to make an appearance at the Financial Brand Forum, a financial industry event held November 14-16 in Las Vegas. On the Sunday before the start of the conference, the organizers informed the participants via email that Leno could not attend due to a “serious medical emergency”. (About people.)

“His family hasn’t been able to give us very many details, but there has been a very serious medical emergency preventing Jay from traveling,” the email read, according to People. “All we know is that he is alive so our prayers go out to him and his family tonight.”

TMZ reported that on Nov. 13, Leno was “at the LA garage where he parks his cars on Sunday when one of the cars burst into flames without warning.” Sources told the outlet that “the flames burned the left side of Jay’s face but thankfully didn’t enter his eye or ear.”

According to TMZ, Leno was taken to the burns ward at the Grossman Burn Center, where he is currently staying.

Leno is a well-known car enthusiast who has hosted the CNBC automotive information series “Jay Leno’s Garage” since 2014. The comedian is one of the most successful stand-ups of his time and is best known for his long tenure as the host of the “Tonight Show.”

Leno began hosting the show in 1992 and — except for a brief hiatus to start his own self-titled talk show in 2009 — stayed on the program through 2014, serving as the host of the syndicated quiz game show You Bet Your Life. He also has a role in the upcoming British film Midas Man, about Beatles manager Brian Epstein as 1950s variety show host Ed Sullivan.
