Kate Winslet Escapes House Fire at Richard Branson’s

Posted by & filed under The Daily Dose (Entertainment News).

In Titanic, Kate Winslet narrowly escaped drowning. And in real life, she just narrowly escaped a house fire.

While on vacation with her family at Richard Branson’s home in the Virgin Islands, a fire broke out this morning around 4 A.M. A violent storm was raging, and it’s assumed that a bolt of lightning struck the house, setting it on fire.

All the guests, including Winslet, her boyfriend Louis Dowler, her children Mia and Joe, and Branson’s son Sam escaped without injury.

Branson’s house wasn’t quite as lucky, and is said to have been completely destroyed by the fire.

We prefer Kate when she’s igniting the big screen!
