Eminem’s childhood home in Detroit, Michigan

Eminem’s notorious childhood home, the same crib that is pictured on the cover of his new album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2 was burned in a fire yesterday.

The house is a 767 square foot, 2-story bungalow, located right near 8 Mile Rd. in Detroit, Michigan. It has 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 and has had roughly 10 other owners 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.

It has been advised in the past for Eminem fans not to visit the house to take pictures as there are many gangs and criminals that prey at on-lookers.
