Sources reported that accident happened on the third floor of the actor’s house at around 00.30 hrs on Saturday. The accident occurred after a refrigerator on the third floor burst. Flames and fumes spread causing damage to an air conditioner on the floor.

Thankfully, no one was hurt in the accident. Kamal Haasan himself had a narrow escape. 

The actor tweeted about the accident on his social media account saying, “Thanks to my staff. Escaped a fire at my house. Lungs full of smoke, I climbed down from the third floor. I am safe. No one hurt. Goodnight “

Haasan has been in mourning after the passing away of his brother, Chandrahaasan, last month. On the work front, the actor is yet to resume shooting for the bilingual, Sabash Naidu, due to a leg injury last year.
