Ricki Lake and Children Escape Fire at Rental Home

Actress and former talk-show host Ricki Lake, along with her two sons and their dog, safely made it out of their Malibu rental home as it went up in flames Saturday morning.

A rep for Lake tells ET the wooden house burned quickly and was destroyed by the fire. Lake lost many personal items but is grateful that everyone is okay, the rep says, adding that the star is currently with friends after the traumatic experience.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department tells us that firemen responded to a 911 call from the home, during which the caller explained that a couch was on fire.

Lake told authorities she was trying to refuel a portable heater when the couch caught fire and the flames then spread to the rest of the home.

The investigation into the cause of the fire is ongoing.
