Eminem’s Childhood Home Caught On Fire

MMLP2 Cover

Last night, Eminem’s boyhood home in Detroit was damaged by fire. The two-story bungalow was pictured on the album cover for the Marshall Mathers LP 2.

According to Senior Chief Jack Wiley, the Detroit Fire Department responded to the fire at 19946 Dresden Street near East State Fair, just south of 8 Mile. When the crews arrived, flames were coming out of the second floor window. They were able to put out the fire, but it damaged portions of the top floor.

Public records indicate that Deborah Mathers purchased the house in 1987 for $19,900. Now, after the property was foreclosed in 2001, it was turned over to the Michigan Land Bank.
