The former Tonight Show host Jay Leno is being treated for serious burns to his face after car burst into flames.

According to reports the former “Tonight Show” host was in his Los Angeles garage on Sunday when one of his cars burst into flames, seemingly inexplicably resulting in serious burns to the left side of Leno’s face but thankfully the flames didn’t “penetrate his eye or his ear.”

Jay Leno spoke about the incident in the following statement he released:

“I got some serious burns from a gasoline fire. I am ok. Just need a week or two to get back on my feet."

The comedian is recovering at Grossman Burn Center in Los Angeles where the hospital said Leno “is in stable condition” and receiving treatment for his face and hands. He is also “in good humor and is touched by all the inquiries into his condition and well-wishes and he wants to let everyone know he’s doing well and that he’s in the ‘best burn center in the United States.’”
