    Are words correctly used?

    Mr Koh was glad that his dog had alerted him to the fire, otherwise it would have spread out of control.

    Are the words in bold correctly used?

    Re: Are words correctly used?

    Yes, it is a helping verb, expressing time or tenses.
    Place a (.) behind the Mr in your original sentence.

    The only mistake is the missing comma, which I've inserted.
