DETROIT — Fire burned the boyhood home of Detroit-area rapper Eminem on Thursday, sending flames shooting from the boarded-up bungalow pictured on the musician’s latest LP, “The Marshall Mathers LP 2.”

The Detroit Fire Department responded to the blaze at 19946 Dresden Street near East State Fair, just south of 8 Mile, at 6:20 p.m., Senior Chief Jack Wiley said.

The home was listed as available for sale on the Michigan Land Bank website on Thursday.
