Eminem's childhood home at 19946 Dresden Street in Detroit was damaged in a fire last night. Firefighters responded to the blaze at around 6:20PM. The fire was coming from the top floor, which sustained some damage. Firefighters were able to put out the flames upon responding to scene, and no injuries have been reported.

It is a bizarre coincidence that the house would be on fire this week, as two days prior, Eminem released his most recent album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2. His childhood home is featured prominently on the album artwork for the new album, just as it was on the original album's cover back in 2000.

The house was foreclosed in 2001, and is currently owned by the Michigan Land Bank. Em's mother, Deborah, bought the house in 1987 for $19,900. You can view video of the damages to the home below.
