Anne Heche estate sued by woman whose house caught fire in fatal car crash

Anne Heche’s estate is being sued by the woman whose house burst into flames in the actress’ fatal car crash.

According to the lawsuit obtained Monday by Page Six, Lynne Mishele claims she and her pets almost lost their lives when Heche’s Mini Cooper plowed into her Los Angeles home on Aug. 5.

Mishele claims Heche’s vehicle “barreled through the front of her house and deep into its interior” before coming “to a halt just feet away” from her, her two dogs named Bree and Rueben, respectively, and her tortoise named Marley.

Mishele claims the “sudden and terrifying blast shook her to her core,” adding that she was left “completely traumatized, unusually startled by hearing loud noises, plagued by nightmares and flashbacks of the incident, terrified of walking outside, and, atop that, without a place to live.”

Additionally, she claims the she had “an entire life’s worth of her personal possessions destroyed in the fire.”

Mishele also referenced the presence of cocaine and fentanyl detected in Heche’s system at the time of the accident.

She is seeking at least $2 million in damages.

Heche — whose oldest son, 20-year-old Homer Laffoon, is the current special administrator of her estate — “became unconscious, slipping into a coma,” shortly after she crashed into Mishele’s home.

The actress was “stuck inside the vehicle” for 45 minutes as the surrounding blaze raged on. She never regained consciousness.

Heche was kept on life support until Aug. 12 in order to harvest some of her organs for donation. Her official cause of death was smoke inhalation and thermal injuries.

The LA County medical examiner-coroner also listed sternal fracture due to blunt trauma as a contributing factor to her death, which was ruled accidental.

She was 53.

Reps for the late star as well as Laffoon have not yet responded to Page Six’s requests for comment.
