Who Fired 50 Cent's Baby Mama?

5/30/2008 10:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A raging inferno broke out at a house owned by 50 Cent early this morning, and the local fire department tells us the fire is "highly suspicious".

The fire broke out at the six bedroom, five bath house in Dix Hills, NY around 5:00 AM. Six people, including the rapper's ex Shaniqua Tompkins and their 10-year-old son Marquise, were in the house. They all were transported to the hospital and treated for smoke inhalation.

The Chief of the Dix Hills Fire Department tells TMZ that dogs are currently searching the burned out rubble, as the intensity of the fire made it highly suspect. The Chief says they're searching for what substance possibly could have been used as an igniter.

The house has been the subject of a bitter dispute between Fiddy, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, and Tompkins. The rapper reportedly bought the home -- one of the biggest cribs in the area -- for a cool $2.4 mil in January 2007. Last month he tried to evict Tompkins and Marquise from the house, demanding she pay him $4,500 a month in rent.

UPDATE 10:25 AM ET: Suffolk Police tell us they received a call at 5 AM. An off-duty police officer was driving by and stopped to help rescue the victims inside the house -- including a pet guinea pig. We're told injuries to all six victims -- including Tompkins -- are non-life threatening and they have been treated and released from the hospital. While they are currently investigating the fire's cause, we're told 50 Cent is not a suspect at this point.

it would be really sad if it comes out that he had something to do with the fire, he could have killed his own child once a thug always a thug all that money and fame that he has and he still wants to do stupid ass things like this.

Who would ask the mother of their own child to pay that much rent knowing she is taking care of the child? He can live rich, but don't think his son deserves a home? I never liked 50 because he always came across as a HEARTLESS BASTARD.

I cant see 50 cent doing this, he was getting his house back, because he put them out, and why would he risk his childs life, but I can see the baby mama doing it, out of anger of getting eveicted, and she would know how much time she need to get her the kids out of the house before the fire got too bad

he did not seem to care where is child was going to live by trying to get the mom out of the house so who is to say that he would not burn the house down the god for bid the child did get killed he would not have to pay child support people like him enjoy making the kids but the don`t want to pay for them.

people can say he's heartless all they want, last i remember that woman had her boyfriend there and wasn't working either...it's messed up how people get blinded by the fact that she's the mother of his son. I'm having a hard time trying to believe that he would actually do something like this...then again none of us know these folk personally, so i guess anything is possible

The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire.....

And Tiffany: He pays her an ASTRONOMICAL amount per month in child support. Trust me, she gets enough money outta him for that child to live MORE than well. She just wanted to take him for all she could because he's got money.

and i just looked at the pics and i hate to say this, but for that price a MONTH, she could OWN a MUCH nicer home.......it kills me how much houses cost out there, but thats why i live in the south!!! :) you can live in a 7 bedroom mansion for less than that.....seriously, anyone who wants to live large, look into the south and you cant spend your money elsewhere!!!!!! [instead of $4,000 a MONTH on freakin rent!!!!] CA-RA-ZY!!!!!!

She's got 6 people livin' in the house with her? WTH? Everyone livin' off 50 apparently. They probably "accidentally" started the fire so they wouldn't have to give him back the house, sort of speak.
