Beyoncé’s childhood home was consumed by a Christmas Day fire.
Firefighters in Houston, Texas’ Third Ward, responded to a raging blaze on the 2400 block of Rosedale Street in the early hours of Christmas day.
They reportedly took 10 minutes to largely tamp down the flames after needing only three minutes to arrive on the scene.
The Knowles family, whose eldest daughter Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter grew up to be an international pop star and the winningest artist in Grammy history, paid 64,000 dollars for the Houston home in 1981.
The couple who live in the house and their two children were home at the time but uninjured.
What caused the two-story home to catch fire wasn’t immediately clear.
The home features a spiral staircase, three bathrooms, and an office.
