I will never forget house fire: Kate Winslet

London: Oscar-winning-actress Kate Winslet says she will never forget escaping the fire that destroyed Richard Branson`s Caribbean home.

The 35-year-old actress carried the Virgin businessman`s 90-year-old mother Eve to safety from the blaze, which took place on Necker Island, owned by Branson.

The `Titanic` star is glad that none of the 20 guests in the Great House, which included her boyfriend Louis Dowler, and two children Mia, 10, and seven-year-old Joe, were hurt, reported Sun online.

"I`m just so glad that everyone is safe. And this very easily could not have been the case. I will never forget Richard placing his arms around both my children as we were watching the flames, and saying, `At the end of the day, what you realise is that all that matters is the people that you love. Everything else is just stuff. And none of that stuff matters`," she said.
