Firefighters responded to a home in Thousand Oaks, CA around 9 p.m. after someone noticed a small fire in the driveway, law enforcement officials tell TMZ. Police were then called when Bynes was found standing near the fire.
After Sheriff’s Deputies arrived and began questioning Bynes about what she was doing, they determined based on her answers that she needed to be hospitalized.
The elderly homeowner says police knocked on her door and asked if she knew Bynes to which she responded “no.” She says police told her Bynes had burnt parts of her clothing.
