A fire has severely damaged Eminem’s childhood home. Fire crews attended the scene, of the Detroit property – located near to the 8 mile – managing to keep the fire to the second floor before it had a chance to spread.

It has been reported that the property which also features on the cover of the rapper’s latest album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2, was set ablaze around 6.20pm on Thursday.

Officials have informed TMZ it is uncertain to how the fire had started.

The city of Detroit has an average of 14 arson attacks a day and has continued to be a problem since the city has 11 arson investigators, according to Reuters.

Eminem’s mother Deborah Mathers bought the property in 1987 for $19, 900 but it has been bought and resold at an estimation of 10 times.

Since being abandoned, the house went into foreclosure in 2001, and failed to be sold at a recent auction for $500.

It is now owned by The Michigan Land Bank – a government programme – which manages 11,000 of the untaken, dilapidated properties in the former Motor City.
