Poor Kate Winslet! How frightened she must've been!

Last night, guests staying with tycoon Richard Branson at his private island in the Caribbean thankfully were able to escape a house fire that started at his home. Richard had about 20 guests staying with him, including Kate, when a lightening storm broke out and a bolt hit the house. He, his wife Joan and son Sam were staying a in a different part of the property about a 100 yards away, but as soon as they saw the blaze, they went to help their friends.

In fact, it was Sam that got to Kate first and he helped her escape the house before the fire got worse. According to reports, officials are still trying to get the fire under control and the property is now "completely destroyed."

That's really rough, but on the bright side, no one was hurt. That's what's most important. Still, sorry for the loss, Rich. At least you know you can always rebuild.

    sooo caption and story don't match. you also could totally have mentioned the fact that she actually physically carried branson's mother from the burning house, saving her life. You know, rather just writing a "poor thing! so scary!" article… yeah scary but she clearly kicked into gear and did what she had to do to get herself and everyone else out! inspirational!
