Former talk-show host Ricki Lake’s rented Malibu home has been completely destroyed by fire that engulfed the property on Saturday.
Lake, along with her two sons, Milo and Owen, and their dog, were at the beachfront property at the time, but made it out safely.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department tells Access Hollywood firemen responded to a 911 call from the home.
“It appears that she was refueling some sort of portable heater when a couch caught fire and that set the whole house ablaze,” a spokesperson said.
Lake later tweeted about the drama: “Thank you everyone for your concern and well wishes,” she wrote. “My sons, beloved dog, and I are safe and very grateful. xoxor [sic].”
