The burns are quite significant,” Grossman noted. Leno was first taken to a local hospital and then transferred to the Grossman Burn Center in Los Angeles after the incident. Leno’s wife was by his side and is “obviously very concerned,” the doctor said. His injuries are a mixture of second-degree and possibly some third-degree burns, according to Grossman. “Some facial burns are a little deeper and a little more concerning.
