Beyonces Childhood Home In Houston Catches Fire

Authorities are Investigating Following a Fire at Beyoncé’s Former Home in Houston

An investigation has been initiated following a fire at the childhood home of renowned singer Beyoncé in Houston, Texas. As per reports from AP News, the incident took place on Christmas Day.

The property, situated on the 4200 block of Rosedale Street, experienced the fire outbreak around 2 a.m. The Houston Fire Department was reported to have reached the scene within a span of three to five minutes from the report.

District Chief Justin Barnes of the Houston Fire Department informed media outlets that the fire was successfully contained within approximately 10 minutes.

Concurrently, an investigation is being conducted to ascertain the cause of the fire.

CNN reported that the current occupants of the Knowles’ former residence were present during the incident but fortunately, no injuries were sustained.

AP News has attempted to reach out to Beyoncé’s publicist for a statement on the incident, but as of Monday, there had been no response to their inquiry.

The house, recognized as an “iconic landmark,” was built in 1942. The Knowles family acquired this property in 1982, and Beyoncé, along with her family, resided there until she was 5 years old, as reported by NBC News.

In a related development earlier in June, Beyoncé and Destiny’s Child bandmate Kelly Rowland announced their plans to invest in their Houston community. They unveiled a $7.2 million initiative aimed at creating 31 permanent housing units for homeless individuals.

Subsequently, in September, Beyoncé, accompanied by her mother Tina Knowles, made a surprise visit to Houston to formally initiate the redevelopment project, as covered by Click2Houston. The construction of the 31 housing units is slated to commence in the first quarter of 2024, with the Knowles-Rowland House foundation, established by Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland, aiming to complete the project by the end of 2024.
