Katie Price’s ‘mansion threatened by blaze as firefighters rush to put out fire’

Katie Price 's mansion was reportedly threatened by a fire on Monday evening, after a caretaker started a bonfire next to the building.

The fire brigade were allegedly called to attend to the blaze, which began next to the 42-year-old's Sussex property.

According to The Sun Online, neighbours grew concerned after witnessing smoke spreading from the property, spiralling from the fire.

A source told the publication: "Katie was horrified when she was called about the fire – apparently the caretaker built a huge fire right next to the house, and when it went up the side of the house was covered in flames.

"It was a huge fire – a neighbour called the fire brigade thinking the house was burning down.

"It was put out in the end but you could see the smoke billowing across the road.

"It's the last thing Katie needs – she says the house is cursed."

Katie's rep told Daily Star Online: "I can confirm there was a fire at Katies property, the fire brigade attended after a call was placed reporting it.

"Katie was not on the premise at the time of the event."

In a statement shared with the publication, Katie's representative confirmed there had been no "serious damage" to the property.

The rep continued: "Eyewitnesses reported to the emergency services that the house was on fire but thankfully it was brought safely under control before any serious damage was done to the building."

Former glamour model Katie has been resting in the peaceful countryside abode since her intensive operation earlier this year.

After breaking both of her feet after a nasty fall in Turkey, the mum-of-five was forced to undergo surgery to repair the breakages in mid-August.

Post-operation, Katie shared an update with her fans, saying: "So I've had my 6 hour op Unfortunately more Procedures was needed when they entered my feet than thought , but I'm lucky I have the chance to one day get on my feet again."

Katie's boyfriend, former Love Island star Carl Woods, has been aiding her throughout her recovery, even keeping her company in the hospital ward.

She added: "Thankyou to @carljwoods for constantly fitting me around his work and being by my side , loving knowing I've found the man that has surprisingly ticked every box I could only dream of a man to be like and knowing I'm spending the rest of my life with him."
