Ricki Lake felt the heat Saturday after her house burned to the ground.

Ricki Lake and her two sons, Sebastian and Owen, managed to dodge harm as they escaped a fire at their Malibu beach house. The family's beloved pooch was also saved from an untimely demise.

A rep for Ricki Lake told Entertainment Tonight the former talk show host was at her home with her sons and dog when the house, which is heavily wood-based, caught fire.

Allegedly, a 911 call was placed from inside Lake's home and LA County firemen came to the rescue.

So, what could have happened to make Ricki Lake's home light up like a torch? The story around the circuit is the 41-year-old star told authorities she was trying to refuel a portable heater when her couch caught fire.

Ricki Lake's kids were not harmed and are reportedly with their father, Lake's ex-husband Rob Sussman.

Just wondering why you fill a heater by your furniture at 7am in your rental.

I don't think knowing what Ricki calls her sons and what words are used to describe this tragety are as important as knowing that Ricki Lake and her family are safe. So I am go just goiing to say "God bless Ricky Lake's family and I wish them all the best."

@ Lindy, her son's name is Milo Sebastian. Maybe the writer is good friends with Ms. Lake and can call the child by his middle name... ;)

I thought one of her son's was named Milo, this says Sebastian and Owen. What happened to Milo?

AJ September 20, 2010 | 12:20 PM Kristin Watson who wrote this article...The word should be "ravaged" not "ravished". "Ravished" means: 1) To fill with strong emotion, esp. joy. 2) To seize and carry off by force. 3) To carry off (a woman) by force. 4) To rape (a woman). "Ravaged" means: 1) To work havoc upon; damage or mar by ravages. 2) To do ruinous damage. If you're gonna write, write right!
