Shortly after her first accident, Heche crashed into a nearby house in Mar Vista and started a fire, according to FOX 11. The fire reportedly engulfed the house and Heche was taken to a Los Angeles hospital in an ambulance.

According to TMZ, due to Heche’s condition, doctors are unable to run tests to determine if he was under the influence while operating his vehicle. However, the outlet reported that a bottle with a red cap was present in Heche’s car at the time of the accident.
No other injuries were reported and the cause of the crash is under investigation, according to FOX 11.
A representative for Heche did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.
The actress’s most recent film was the action flick “13 Minutes,” in which she starred alongside Thora Birch, Amy Smart and Will Peltz. Heche recently showed her support for her “friend of hers” Alec Baldwin after the public criticized the actor after his “Rust” reveal interview.
“My friend, whatever happens in our lives that we can’t control. I’m with you,” Heche wrote on Baldwin’s Instagram post. “Mainly because I know the goodness of your soul.”
