Kate Winslet Unhurt in Fire at Branson’s Property


British Oscar-winning actress Kate Winslet, her boyfriend and family were among the 20 guests at billionaire Richard Branson’s privately owned Necker Island property which caught fire due to a lightning strike that gutted the home completely last Sunday.

Branson released a comment to the British media saying, “Around 20 people were in the house and they all managed to get out and they are all fine. We had a really bad tropical storm with winds up to 90 miles per hour. A big lightning storm came around 4am and hit the house.

“My son Sam rushed to the house and helped get everyone out. Kate Winslet, her boyfriend and her family were there and Holly and some of her friends were also staying. My mother was there and they managed to get her out and she is fine.”

Branson also said that he plans to rebuild the property. According to the British media, the property had been expected to be the venue for the marriage later this year of Holly to fiancé Fred Andrews.
