Former talk show host, Ricki Lake, is lucky to be alive. Apparently, Lake’s house caught fire on Saturday at her Malibu rental home. Luckily, the actress made it out of her burning house with her two sons and dog in tow. 

According the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, firemen responded to a call from Lake’s home. The caller claimed that the couch was on fire. Lake later told authorities that she was trying to refuel a portable heater when the couch caught fire, and spread throughout the house. The Pacific Coast Highway was shut down for 90 minutes due firefighters trying to extinguish the flames. 

According to MSN, there is an investigation regarding the cause of the fire. 

Wow, that must have been frightening for Lake and her children. Luckily, everybody got out alive without any physical harm done. Anybody who’s ever experienced a fire knows how terrifying those precious minutes can be. Maybe next time, Lake will do her refueling in a little safer spot.
