The owner of the home Anne Heche crashed into shared a message about the death of the actress in a video on Instagram.
“The news of Anne Heche passing is devastating. Her family and her friends and her children, especially, really have suffered a great loss, and my heart goes out for them,” said Lynne Mishele in a video she posted to the account for her business Creative Organization on Friday.
“This entire situation is tragic and there really are just no words. I’m sending love to everybody involved,” she continued.
Mishele was in her backyard when the “Wag The Dog” actress, 53, crashed into her two-story home on August 5. Mishele narrowly escaped with her three pets. Her home, located in the Mar Vista neighborhood of Los Angeles, suffered “structural compromise” in the fire caused by the crash, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.
In a previous statement issued to People by her attorney Shawn Holley, Mishele revealed that she not only lost her home but “all of her property, including items of profound sentimental value.” A GoFundMe page established to help her rebuild has raised over $175,000 from 4,200 donors as of writing.

Heche was initially stable after the accident. Her health rapidly declined and a spokesperson shared on Thursday night that she was “not expected to survive” her severe brain and pulmonary injuries.
On Friday, Heche’s representative confirmed that the actress was legally dead. She remained on life support while the OneLegacy foundation, an organ procurement organization serving the southern California area, searched for organ donation recipients. Holly Baird, Heche’s representative, confirmed to Insider on Sunday night that Heche had been “peacefully taken off life support.”
Heche is survived by her two sons, Atlas Heche Tupper, 13, and Homer Laffoon, 20. Her family issued the following statement to Insider on Friday emphasizing her kindness, courage, and generosity.
“Anne had a huge heart and touched everyone she met with her generous spirit. More than her extraordinary talent, she saw spreading kindness and joy as her life’s work – especially moving the needle for acceptance of who you love. She will be remembered for her courageous honesty and dearly missed for her light,” the statement read.
