Beyoncé‘s childhood home in Houston’s Third Ward caught fire on Monday, Christmas Day, at 2:00 a.m. When firefighters arrived, the house was already engulfed in flames, but they were able to extinguish the fire quickly before it caused further damage.
The Knowles family moved out of the house several years ago, but it was still considered a popular landmark for fans of the Houston-born musician.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but it is believed to have been accidental. No one was injured in the fire.
Beyoncé has not yet commented on the fire.
The fire comes as a shock to many fans of Beyoncé, who grew up in the Third Ward. The house was a symbol of her humble beginnings and her rise to stardom.
“It’s so sad to see the house that Beyoncé grew up in destroyed by fire,” said one fan. “It’s a reminder of how far she’s come, but it’s also a loss for the community.”
The fire is a reminder of the dangers of fire. It is important to have a fire escape plan and to practice it regularly. It is also important to have a fire extinguisher in your home and to know how to use it.
