A woman drove her car into a home located in the Mar Vista neighborhood of Los Angeles on Friday night,

in turn setting the car and the home on fire, authorities say. An individual with experience in the area said to CNN that the person driving the car was actor Anne Heche.

The driver was driving at an extremely fast speed when she veered off the road and struck the house, Los Angeles Police Public Information Officer Jeff Lee tells CNN.  

The crash left the vehicle burning and the driver was afflicted with burns. The driver was transported to

an area hospital with Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics in critical medical condition.

The firefighters took more than one-hour "access to, control and fully eliminate the blazes that were threatening

the severely damaged structure," the LAFD said. There were no injuries were reported.
