Lynne Mishele, a woman who was renting a home that was destroyed in Anne Heche’s fiery car crash on Friday, is “devastated” following the incident.

“Ms. Mishele is devastated by what happened to her on Friday — not only because she and her pets almost lost their lives but because all of her property, including items of profound sentimental value, were destroyed,” Shawn Holley, the tenant’s attorney, told Fox News Digital on Monday. “She asks for privacy at this incredibly difficult time.”

While Mishele escaped unharmed, her home was “immediately red-tagged” and she “lost her entire lifetime of possessions” in the ordeal, which happened minutes after Heche careened into a garage door in an apartment complex down the street.

More than 770 individual donations poured into the site, which had a goal to raise $100,000 for the “kind and generous person” who was left without a home following the incident, and where Heche was pulled out of her car and taken to an area hospital.

“Lynne lives with her beautiful pups Bree and Rueban, and tortoise Marley in the Mar Vista home that was destroyed this week by a car driving into the home at a high rate of speed, catching the house on fire,” the campaign said.

“Even more distressing is that Lynne lost her entire lifetime of possessions, mementos, all equipment for her business including her laptop and iPad, all of her clothing and basic necessities, and all household items. With firefighters’ help, she was able to pull a few damaged sentimental belongings from the wreckage. Everything else is gone.”

Heche “drank vodka” with “wine chasers” during a “Better Together” podcast recording with co-host Heather Duffy, which was posted hours before the fiery collision. The podcast was published on Friday and then removed from the platform.

Heche joked that listeners would have to keep their “fingers crossed” that the pair would even be able to make it through the recording together.

“We each have a bottle in front of us because our friends sent us a bottle [of] Re:Find!” she said before admitting she once “did a terrible commercial” for the brand.

Duffy added that a doctor told the duo “that we should be drinking vodka instead of wine.”

“And we listened! And we are drinking it — with wine chasers,” Heche said, while seemingly slurring the name of the podcast.

She also admitted in the podcast: “Today’s been a very unique day. “I don’t know what happened, sometimes days just suck, and I don’t know if you ever have them, but some days Mama says are … some days are those no good very bad days. And I don’t know why some days just end up like this, and things don’t really rock me like that.”

Prior to the blaze, witnesses in the residential community told TMZ that they tried to help the actress out of her car before she hit a garage door, reversed her vehicle out of a parking lot and fled the scene. Minutes later, the “Donnie Brasco” star crashed her car into a house and ignited a fire that engulfed the home.

She sustained burn injuries and was “conscious and breathing” when she was removed from the vehicle and placed on a stretcher, before abruptly sitting up as authorities rushed her to an ambulance in video footage from the scene of the incident.

The Los Angeles Fire Department shared a statement saying the vehicle had a single occupant when it rammed into a two-story home built in 1952.

An eyewitness of Heche’s incident in Los Angeles shared details of the crash with Fox News Digital on Saturday.

The witness, Lynne Bernstein, detailed the crash as “horrific” and said he could “hardly breathe” when trying to assist Heche out of the blue Mini Cooper she was driving.

“The smoke was just getting way too intense, we could hardly breathe,” Bernstein said. “The smoke was making it difficult to see.”

Bernstein said that he and his wife witnessed a car going down their street at a “high rate of speed” before his wife heard Heche’s car crash into their neighbor’s house. He noted his neighbor, Dave, asked Heche if she was alright, and she responded that she was not. LAFD arrived on the scene, asked the neighbors if anyone was in the house, and alerted first responders that a woman was inside.

The tenant of the house fled her home from a side room and said she was “shocked” by what had happened, and told the group of people to “get out of my house” before realizing what happened.

The crash “scared the entire neighborhood,” Yaroslav Borets told Fox News Digital. “Something we will remember for a long time.” Borets noted that his neighborhood is “not the kind neighborhood that knows everyone next door.”
