Family Impacted By Fire After Buying Beyonce’s Childhood Home

Beyonce’s childhood home in Houston caught on fire during the early hours of Christmas Day, prompting an investigation into what caused the flames.

A family who resides in Beyonce’s old family home in Houston is dealing with a Christmas Day tragedy. The house the singer grew up in lit up in flames from a fire sparked on the holiday.

According to the Houston Chronicle, the incendiary incident occurred in the early hours of Christmas morning, approximately at 2 a.m. on Dec. 25. The family of four who lives in the Third Ward abode were awakened by the blaze, calling firefighters as they evacuated the home. Fortunately for the new homeowners, consisting of the couple and their two younger children, no one was injured from the fire.

Beyonce lived at the residence in the Riverside Terrance neighborhood from 1982 until her early years. The singer has frequently referred to her H-town upbringing in numerous songs, and visited her childhood home while at the two-show Houston stop on her record-breaking Renaissance World Tour. The home is known to Beyonce’s fanbase, deemed the Beyhive, as a landmark fixture in the entertainer’s history, often visited by dedicated fans to pay homage as well.

An investigation to what caused the fire, and if it has any relation to the star, is still ongoing, with the extent of the damage done being unclear.
