Jay Leno Suffers Burns in Car Fire

Jay Leno is, of system, most nicely-acknowledged for being a former host of the Tonight Present and a comic. But he is also arguably 1 of America’s most popular car lovers/collectors — and he even hosts a Tv set display on CNBC spotlighting his automotive passions.

He was seemingly operating on 1 of his automobiles when he was burned in a fire this weekend in Los Angeles.

“I acquired some really serious burns from a gasoline fireplace. I am alright. Just will need a week or two to get back again on my toes,” the 72-year-previous Leno stated in a assertion to NBC News. He was reportedly hospitalized as of this afternoon.

According to reports, a flash fireplace burned Leno’s deal with as he wrenched on one of his autos, and he was taken to Grossman Melt away Heart in West Hills.

A source instructed NBC News that Leno was “physically Ok” but had experienced “some problems”.

Leno canceled a scheduled effectiveness in Las Vegas on Sunday, as perfectly as any gatherings he experienced scheduled for this 7 days. I really don’t know if that incorporates any Los Angeles Auto Exhibit gatherings — automakers generally get celebs to acquire portion in new-auto launches in the course of the show 7 days. Leno might also have been attending functions with no fanfare — a couple of many years back I noticed Leno standing quietly from throughout the space during a Jaguar Land Rover event for the duration of LA display week. He evidently snuck out prior to the mob of media and JLR employees observed his existence.

It is really a bummer that one of the best motor vehicle guys will be paying out the media-day part of the clearly show recovering from his burns, but I am glad it appears like he’ll be great.
