Actress Anne Heche died as a result of the fire that broke out after her car crashed into a Los Angeles home earlier this month, the L.A. County Coroner announced Wednesday.

The main cause of Heche’s death is listed as “inhalation and thermal injuries.” Another contributing factor was a “sternal fracture due to blunt trauma,” the coroner’s report states.

Heche was removed from life support on Sunday, nine days after she crashed into a home in L.A.’s Mar Vista neighborhood and started a large fire.

She was 53.

Investigators believe Heche was intoxicated at the time of the crash. Witnesses also captured video of her speeding through city streets before her Mini Cooper ultimately careened into the home.

Heche won a Daytime Emmy Award in 1991 for her role in the NBC soap opera “Another World.” She was also well-known for roles in the movies “Donnie Brasco,” “Six Days, Seven Nights,” and “Wag the Dog,” as well as her high-profile relationship with comedian Ellen DeGeneres.
