The 53-year-old actress is the former partner of American talk show host Ellen DeGeneres and is known for films such as Donnie Brasco, Cedar Rapids, and Psycho.

Photos and video footage obtained by U.S. media outlet TMZ show Ms. Heche behind the wheel of a blue Mini Cooper, which was later photographed badly damaged at the scene of the accident.

The vehicle crashed into a two-story house and "burst into flames," according to the Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD).

"It took 59 firefighters 65 minutes to gain access, contain and fully extinguish the stubborn flames inside the heavily damaged building," an LAFD report said.

"An adult female was found inside the vehicle. She was taken by LAFD paramedics to an area hospital in critical condition."

LAFD also confirmed to PA News Agency that the vehicle had entered 30 feet into the residence, but the occupant escaped unharmed.

The building was left "uninhabitable," spokesman Brian Humphrey added. Heche began dating DeGeneres in 1997 but split from her in 2000.
