DETROIT -- A fire has burned the childhood home of rapper Eminem in Detroit.
The Detroit News and Detroit Free Press report crews responded Thursday evening to the boarded-up bungalow, which is pictured on the cover of Eminem's just-released The Marshall Mathers LP 2. It also was on the musician's 2000 album The Marshall Mathers LP.
The blaze damaged portions of the small home's top floor. The cause of the fire wasn't immediately known.
Public records show the home was listed as the address of Eminem's mother, Deborah Mathers, starting in the 1980s. It later changed hands.
The home was listed earlier this year for online auction by the state. A past owner tried to sell it on eBay for $500,000 but received no bids.
