Leno told The Post on Monday, “I got seriously burned from a gasoline fire. I’m fine. I just need a week or two to get back on my feet.”

Sources had told TMZ that the blast caused severe burns to the left side of Leno’s face, but did not seriously injure his eye or ear.

Leno, who has reportedly canceled his two-week engagements, told the outlet that he expects to stay in the hospital for up to 10 days.
