“I got some serious burns from a gasoline fire. I am ok. Just need a week or two to get back on my feet,” Leno said in a statement to  Variety

Leno, a passionate auto enthusiast, was purportedly working on one of his cars in his garage when it allegedly caught fire. According to a TMZ source, he is receiving medical care for his wounds at the Grossman Burn Center in Los Angeles.
