Jay Leno has been hospitalized after suffering serious facial burns in a car fire Sunday.
The 72 year-old entertainment legend was in his Los Angeles garage when one of them burst into flames.
Leno has been taken to the burn ward at Grossman Burn Center. Sources tell TMZ the flames burned the left side of Jay’s face, but thankfully did not penetrate his eye or his ear.
Leno splits his time between his home in LA and his Ocean Drive Estate in Newport.
Leno confirmed the fire on Monday to Variety. “I got some serious burns from a gasoline fire. I am ok. Just need a week or two to get back on my feet.”
