Beyonce‘s parental home went up in flames on Christmas Day.
Officials say they responded around 2 a.m. to reports of a fire at the home, located in the city’s Third Ward.
The two-story house was on fire, but first responders extinguished the fire in about ten minutes.
Fortunately, the family – a couple with two young children – were able to evacuate the house. No one was injured.
As we previously reported… Beyoncé’s family bought the house in 1981 for $64,000, but they moved out just a few years later, before Solange was born in 1986.
The house went up for sale in 2019. It has 3 bedrooms, three bathrooms and a spiral staircase leading to an office space on the third floor.
A buyer purchased the 8,640-square-foot lot next to the house in 2022 for $310,000.
