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.

Well, it was just devils night in Detroit wasn't it? I know the reports of Arson have dropped, but there still must be some dips running around doing the devils night thing. Maybe someone didn't get their fire bug satisfied last month? Possibly.

Or it was just an electrical fire.

LOVE the new album. Eminem did an excellent job.

I went to see this place this summer actually looks worse now than in that picture. Most of the homes on the block if not all are abondened and if you go see it and get into trouble average time for a cop to respond is 58 minutes fyi.
