At a glance

  • Leno told TMZ that his friend Dave, who was in the garage with him at the time, was able to smother the flames — otherwise, he said that the fire was serious enough that it easily could have killed him.
  • The former “Tonight Show” host was reportedly lucky that the flames did not damage his eyes or ears — but third-degree burns on his face could ultimately cause him to need skin grafts in order to heal properly.
  • After the accident on Sunday, attendees at the Financial Brand Forum 2022 in Las Vegas were notified that he would not appear as scheduled.
