The former Tonight Show host was in the care of the Grossman Burn Center for 10 days after the fire at his LA garage earlier this month.

In a statement, Dr Peter Grossman said: “I am pleased with Jay’s progress, and I am optimistic that he will make a full recovery.”

The plastic surgeon described the burns on Leno’s face, hands, and chest as being second-degree.
