London, Aug 25 (ANI): Kate Winslet has revealed that she is relieved after escaping the fire that engulfed the luxury Caribbean home of Sir Richard Branson .

The 35-year-old English actress and her two children were among the 20 guests who fled the eight-bedroom mansion on Necker Island as it was razed to the ground.

"I'm just so glad that everyone is safe. And this very easily could not have been the case," the Sun quoted her as telling reporters.

"I will never forget Richard placing his arms around both my children as we were there watching the flames, and saying 'At the end of the day, what you realise is that all that matters is the people you love. Everything else is just stuff. And none of that staff really matters'," she said.

The 'Titanic' star helped carry the business magnet's 90-year-old mom away from the burning property, which was struck by lightning during a tropical storm. (ANI)
