Beyonce’s Houston, TX Childhood Home Caught Fire On Christmas
Heartbreaking News From Houston's Third Ward Where Global Superstar Beyonce Grew Up.
The Texas childhood home of one of the world's biggest stars caught on fire Christmas morning according to FOX 26.
Officials say first responders arrived within 3-5 minutes to find the two-story house with intense flames erupting from the front.
Firefighters successfully contained the bulk of the fire within 10 minutes as Firefighters had to cut into the roof to address the attic and eaves, ensuring that the fire was fully under control.
Thankfully, a couple and their 2 small children self-evacuated before the HFD arrived and no injuries were reported.
The Home Is Located In Houston's Riverside Terrace Neighborhood.
This brick home was built in 1946 and according to the realtor who sold the home, Beyonce's parents, Matthew and Tina Knowles, purchased the home in 1982 when The soon to be Queen B was still a baby.
The House Went Up For Sale A Few Years Ago And Was Sold In 2019.
The three bedroom and three bath home featured almost 3,000 square feet of living space with original hardwood floors, granite & stainless-steel kitchen, Living Room with fireplace, Master Retreat with "stage" bed platform & spiral staircase to a third-floor loft.
The asking price was $500,000 but the home sold for a little less than that after being on the market for 123 days according to the real estate listing on its website.
The house is described as having been featured on MTV and BET, close to local sports venues, and having never flooded.
The Knowles Family moved out of the house sometime before Beyonce's sister Solange was born in 1986 so they weren't there very long but its still considered an iconic landmark to music lovers and "The Bey Hive" so let's take a look inside shall we?
