“I got some serious burns from a gasoline fire. I am ok. Just need a week or two to get back on my feet,” he said in a statement.
News of the accident first emerged when People reported that Leno had cancelled an appearance at a Las Vegas financial conference.
“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 to attendees from conference organizers stated. “All we know is that he is alive, so our prayers go out to him and his family tonight.”
