Recently, in an extremely unfortunate incident, Fortnite pro ClutchFN's house was burnt down in a raging fire.
Over the course of its impressive three-year run, Epic Games' Fortnite has emerged as one of the most popular and influential games in today's era of competitive gaming.
With several games jostling for top honours in a highly competitive industry, Fortnite has managed to hold its own and continues to evolve and grow by leaps and bounds.
Moreover, ever since 16-year old Kyle "Bugha" Giersdorf was crowned champion at the inaugural Fortnite World Cup, the charm of competitive Fortnite has witnessed a major shot in the arm, with several young aspirants looking to make a name for themselves in the game.
One such aspirant is ClutchFN, who is still relatively new to the competitive scene. He recently took to Twitter to share a harrowing story:

In order to further supplement this incident, he also debunked a news story, which seems to have misinterpreted what actually happened:
He has now taken to crowdfunding platform GoFundMe, in an attempt to raise funds for the reconstruction of his house, as he made a genuine plea to the online community for help:
