India, Aug. 24 -- A room of Indian cricketer S Sreesanth's house was gutted after fire broke out on the ground floor of the fast bowler's residence at Edapally, Kochi on Saturday. The incident reportedly took place at around 2 am. But thankfully, no one was hurt.

While Sreesanth was away shooting for a film in Mumbai, his wife, children and domestic helps were inside the house when the fire broke out at around 2 a.m.

An alert neighbour, seeing the fire and the smoke, immediately called fire officials who doused the fire and evacuated those present inside the house by breaking open a glass ventilator.

According to Sreesanth, the fire broke out in the drawing room in the ground floor when his wife and children were on the first floor.
