Suspicious Fire Destroys the Mathers Former Residence
The childhood home of rap star Eminem caught fire yesterday at 6:20pm, leaving damages to the second floor.
Firefighters have not identified the cause of the fire that destroyed the 767-square-foot, two-story bungalow, located on Dresden Street, just south of 8 Mile Road.
According to public records in 1987 Em’s mother Deborah Mathers purchased the home for $19,900. The Detroit home has currently been abandoned and is for sale by the bank after failing to sell for $500 at Wayne County Treasurer’s Office auction.
