Jay Leno suffered a “serious medical emergency” which forced him to cancel an appearance in Las Vegas over the weekend.
Leno said in a statement 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.”
The former late night host was scheduled to perform at a financial summit on Sunday, according to People.
“His family was not able to provide us very many details, but there was a very serious medical emergency that is preventing Jay from traveling,” an email sent to attendees stated.
“All we know is that he is alive, so our prayers go out to him and his family tonight.”
On Sunday, “Leno’s Garage” tweeted a photo of Jay at 12:15 p.m. with, “Best caption wins, go!”
While reports circulated a fire broke out in Leno’s Burbank garage, Los Angeles Fire Department Captain Erik Scott told Fox News Digital, “We are not aware of any response matching that description.”
