Fire incident: Kate Henshaw’s landlord angry, says she is not considerate

Recall that on June 25, 2015, news went viral on the social media space that the house of beautiful actress, Kate Henshaw was gutted by fire. This generated a lot of sympathy from friends and well-wishers of the award winning role interpreter, as they send a lot of goodwill messages to her.
It was reported that fire consumed Kate Henshaw’s house located at Ojibo Adjaro Street, Lekki Phase 1, Lagos at about 3pm on June 25 while the actress was away, probably at a movie location.
There were contrary reports about where the fire started. While a report claimed the fire started from the actress’s bedroom and spread to other parts of the house, another report stated the fire started from her living room. But there was no argument in the report that the fire was caused by a power surge occasioned by restoration of electricity by the Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN).
We learnt that Kate Henshaw lost most of her valuable properties, and when neighbors put a call to her and informed her that her apartment was on fire, the multi-talented actress rushed to the house and when she saw the extent of the damage, she broke down in tears. The fire was eventually put out so as to prevent it from consuming the whole building, but there were very little property she could salvage.
Two days after the fire incident, Kate Henshaw brought in a truck and packed away what she could salvage from the ruins.
Meanwhile, initial report suggested that the house belonged to the actress, but investigations carried out by our reporters revealed that the burnt house is owned by an 85 year old pensioner who uses the rents from his tenant as means of survival.
A source close to the landlord told us that as soon as Kate Henshaw packed out her salvaged belongings, she did not look back.
“You see, it was because of her negligence that the fire started in the first instance. She left her Air conditioner on, when she knew she was going out of the house. So, when the power supply was restored in the vicinity, a power surge occurred in her apartment and the fire started. The problem now is that after she evacuated her belongings, she just gave the keys to the gate man and walked away”. The source disclosed.
We were also informed that Kate Henshaw’s yearly tenancy was to expire in the month of July while she had written to confirm she would be renewing for another year.
“After the fire incident, the landlord made an offer to her, which is to pay her renewal rent so that the old man will add money to renovate the building to standard, while she will not pay a dime in the following year. Is that not good enough? She did not respond and just left the place like that, as if she says ‘it is your own problem’. What she has done is not fair to the landlord, despite the fact that she caused the fire outbreak”. The source said.
However, we learnt the Cross Rivers State born actress who is the brand ambassador of Onga food seasoning now lives somewhere around Oniru Estate.
