Several reports indicate that US actress Anne Heche was injured following an accident in which her vehicle was reported to be "engulfed in flames". Ms. Heche's home is located in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles, near the site of the incident that occurred on Friday morning.
It is reported that the actress, 53, is the former partner of US talk show host Ellen DeGeneres and that she is best known for the films Donnie Brasco, Cedar Rapids, and Psycho. US media reports said that Ms. Heche was driving a gray Mini Cooper, which was later pictured severely damaged at the scene. Video footage obtained by US media shows Ms. Heche driving the car.
The vehicle struck a two-story home and "erupted in heavy fire" after it struck the home, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD). "The Los Angeles Fire Department reported that 59 firefighters took 65 minutes to reach, confine, and completely extinguish the stubborn flames within the heavily damaged structure, after which it was completely evacuated."
"The LAFD Paramedics have rescued an adult female from the inside of the vehicle, who has been transported to an area hospital by ambulance in a critical condition." It has been confirmed by LAFD to the PA news agency that the suspect vehicle had driven 30 ft into the residence, but it appears that the occupants escaped without being injured as a result of the event.
According to spokesman Brian Humphrey, the building was left "uninhabitable". DeGeneres and Heche began dating in 1997, but they separated in 2000.
