Currently, the former Nickelodeon star's parents are seeking to extend her stay at a Southern California hospital for up to 30 days, the New York Daily News also reports.
The 27-year-old troubled star is apparently suffering form schizophrenia and is taking medicine to treat her mental health issues.
Amanda Bynes was hauled off to the hospital last week after she allegedly started the gasoline fire around the corner from her parents' house in Thousand Oaks, Calif, the New York Daily News reports.
Amanda Bynes has earned the attention of fans and celebrities alike for her unusual behavior and recent criminal activity, including throwing a marijuana pipe at security guards from her New York apartment.
Her mother has also asked the judge handling her case to keep the courtroom closed for the next hearing.
No word yet on the decision to keep Amanda Bynes in the conservatorship for an extended period of time.
