The 72-year-old former Tonight show host was scheduled to perform at the Financial Brand Forum on Sunday (November 13).

In a statement sent to diversity, Leno said, “I sustained some serious burns from a gasoline fire. i’m ok It only takes me a week or two to get back on my feet.”

In an email to attendees at the Vegas conference, organizers wrote: “His family has not been able to give us many details but there has been a very serious medical emergency preventing Jay from traveling.

“All we know is that he is alive so our prayers go out to him and his family tonight.”
