Ricki Lake's House Burns Down

Tragedy hit this weekend for Ricki Lake when her beach house caught fire. Luckily the actress, her two sons and their dog were all able to escape unharmed. A rep for Lake told Entertainment Tonight that the wooden Malibu rental burned quickly and was destroyed.

Officials responded to a 911 call Saturday morning, and Lake told authorities that a couch went up in flames while she was attempting to refuel a portable heater. The former talk-show host said that the rest of the house quickly began burning.

Lake lost many personal items in the blaze, her rep said, but is grateful that nobody was hurt. She is currently staying with friends.

The investigation into the cause of the fire is ongoing.
