Emmy-nominated actress Anne Heche has been hospitalized after crashing her vehicle into a Los Angeles home, causing the structure to catch on fire.

Heche was seen on video driving a blue Mini Cooper in a neighborhood before crashing into an apartment building's garage on Friday. Before residents could help her out of the vehicle, she reversed and drove off, then crashed into a nearby home in the neighborhood Mar Vista, igniting a fire in the crash, according to TMZ.

The Los Angeles Fire Department said a “female adult found within the vehicle” was taken to a nearby hospital by LAFD paramedics in “critical condition” and that no other injuries were reported. A total of 59 firefighters arrived on the scene, and it took 65 minutes to contain and extinguish the fire fully, the fire department added.

The department did not identify Heche as the driver, but law enforcement officials confirmed that Heche is the registered owner of the vehicle and that she suffered significant burns. She was reported to be under the influence and acting erratically, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The actress was covered in a white cloth when rescuers carried her away on a stretcher and into an ambulance. As she was placed in the ambulance, the actress suddenly sat up on the stretcher and began flailing wildly, reports said.

In one of the photos taken from the accident, a bottle with a red cap in the car's cup holder was seen next to the gearshift.
