Fire Burns Through Boyhood Home
Eminem‘s childhood home — the same pad he pictured on the cover of his new album, “The Marshall Mathers LP 2” — was badly burned in a fire yesterday … officials say.
The 767 square foot, 2-story bungalow — located right near 8 Mile in Detroit — sustained damage to the second floor. Fire crews were able to put out the flames before it spread to the rest of the home.
Officials say the blaze began around 6:20 pm Thursday evening. So far, it’s unclear how the fire began.
Public records show the home was bought by Em’s mom in 1987 for $ 19,900 — it’s changed hands roughly 10 times since then. The home was eventually abandoned, and after failing to sell for $ 500 at a recent auction, it’s currently owned by a bank.
