Kate Henshaw speaks on house fire

Kate Henshaw sheds some light on the day her Lekki property was gutted in a fire.
While star actress Kate Henshaw has been entertaining audiences in the latest Africa Magic sitcom, Do Good, earlier this year things briefly weren't quite as blissful for her.

Back in June this year Kate Henshaw's Lekki house was gutted in a fire that destroyed most of her property. Now after not saying much on the incident, besides thanking fans and family for their support, Henshaw has finally shed some light on the day most of her possessions were turned to ashes.

In a recent interview with City People, she chronicled what happened and the desperate attempts to try put out the blaze. Have a look at some excerpts from the interview:

"It is true. The house got burnt and I lost everything. I really don't know what happened because I was here on the 'Do Good' set, I was filming, and was about to have lunch when my nanny called me and was like "madam fire". I told her to get people to throw water on it and didn't even know it was like a big fire. I immediately got up and by the time I turned into the street before mine, I could see the sky was black. I got there and there were people everywhere and nobody could get in. Because the first thing about fire is the smoke, its going to make it totally impossible to get in, and it could kill you. And my next door neighbour was having his daughter's birthday and there were children there, that was IK Osakioduwa, he happens to be my next door neighbour, and he had sent a message to all radio stations about the fire"


She continues, "I called the fire service for over 2 hours and there was no response, by the time they came everything had gone. The house was razed completely. But I am talking to you now, and I am glad to be alive. Winning this award further goes to show that as long as there is life, you can hope for tomorrow"

Fortunately though all is now well and you can catch the hilarious actress every weekday on Do Good.
