Anne Heche was trapped in her vehicle for 45 minutes until she was rescued by the Fire

Department on August 5. She was driving in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles 

when she crashed her blue Mini Cooper into the garage of an apartment complex. 

According to NBC4, official records from the Fire Department point out that because of

the flames, it took professionals at least twenty minutes before they could reach 

the car and, consequently, Anne Heche. "Given the heavy fire 

and smoke conditions, it was not possible to clearly see the 

vehicle or access it," said LAFD Deputy Chief Richard Fields.
