Beyoncé’s Childhood Home Catches Fire

During Christmas morning (12.25,) the Beyoncé‘s very first house fire.

Officials at the scene told ABC 13 that the catastrophe was reported at approximately 2 a.m., but was quickly extinguished once the firemen arrived. According to District Chief Justin Barnes “They did a great job.” “I’m going to say in less than 10 minutes, we had a really good grip on this fire.”

Despite the Knowles family vacating the property many years ago, the home remains a Texas landmark in Houston’s Third Ward. Paying repeated homage to her time in her hometown, Beyoncé has made countless references Houston in multiple songs. In 2017, the superstar singer/songwriter pledged the help of her philanthropic BeyGOOD organization, following the devastation of Hurricane Harvey in Texas, and she visited with Hurricane Harvey evacuees and helped distribute food at her hometown church.

At the time, Bey said “This today is a celebration of survival.” “Y’all are my family. Houston is my home. I thank God that y’all are safe, that your children are safe. The things that really matter are your health and your children, and your family and your life.”

During the North American leg of her Renaissance World Tour earlier this year, Beyoncé returned to Houston for a special two-night hometown show where she brought out fellow Houston native, rapper Megan Thee Stallion, to perform their Grammy Award-winning ‘Savage Remix,” collaboration for the first time.

While the cause of the fire is currently under investigation, the family who was home at the time were able to evacuate without any injuries, reports KHOU 11.
