The vehicle hit a two-story house and “erupted into a major fire” according to the Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD).

“59 firefighters took 65 minutes to access, contain and completely extinguish the persistent flames in the badly damaged structure,” according to a LAFD report.

“A female adult (was) found in the vehicle, which was taken to an area hospital in critical condition by LAFD Paramedics.”

The LAFD also confirmed to the PA news agency that the vehicle had entered the residence 30 feet, but the occupant had escaped without injury.

The building was left “uninhabitable,” spokesman Brian Humphrey added.

Heche began dating DeGeneres in 1997, but broke up in 2000.
