Lynne Mishele, the Los Angeles woman whose home was set ablaze in the tragic automobile accident last week that ultimately killed Anne Heche, took to Instagram following the news of the actress’s death.
“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,” she said in a short video.
“This entire situation is just tragic and there really are just no words. I’m sending love to everyone involved,” she continued.
A neighbor who spoke to reporters following the accident said Mishele was “extremely fortunate” that she was in a different room when the crash occurred. The house caught fire “almost immediately” after Heche’s MINI Cooper slammed into it, and drove “almost all the way through.”
Mishele sought medical assistance for minor injuries following the accident.
A previous video from Mishele offered a thank you for “the overwhelming amount of love and compassion and generosity and kindness that people have shown over the past week.” She added that she was “trying to figure out up from down” after “the most insane, traumatic time.”
She ended her message with a shot of her two dogs, who survived the incident. A pet tortoise is also okay, but staying at a friend’s.
Mishele uploaded these videos to her business account, Creative Organization, a service that helps people declutter their homes. (The before & after page is impressive!) Friends of Mishele have also organized a GoFundMe, which has already surpassed its goal.
