As NBC reports, citing the available documents from the fire department, Heche is said to have been trapped in the burning car wreck. Due to the strong development of heat and smoke, it took around 20 minutes for the firefighters to gain access to the Mini Cooper. It took another 20 minutes to pull the vehicle out of the burning house with a tow truck.
Heche was only rescued after 45 minutes
It was only after almost 45 minutes that the firefighters managed to free the actress from the fire hell and provide medical care. The coroner cited smoke inhalation and burns as the cause of death. In addition, a blood test showed that Heche had drugs in his body and that his sternum had been broken by “blunt trauma” in the impact. A typical injury in frontal, serious car accidents. Her death was ruled an accident and police said all investigations into the actress’ death have been dropped.
Heche has since been cremated and buried in the famed Hollywood Forever Cemetery, near the graves of numerous notables including actress Judy Garland, director Cecil B. Demille and Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell.
