Fire guts through Eminem's childhood home

Eminem's boyhood home, the same pad he pictured on the cover of his new album, "The Marshall Mathers LP 2" was badly burned in a fire yesterday ... TMZ reports.
The 767 square foot, 2-story bungalow located right near 8 Mile in Detroit sustained damage to the second floor. Fire crews were able to put out the flames before it spread to the rest of the home.

Officials say the blaze began around 6:20 pm Thursday evening. So far, it's unclear how the fire began. Public records show the home was bought by Em's mom in 1987 for $19,900 . it has changed hands roughly 10 times since then. The home was eventually abandoned, and after failing to sell for $500 at a recent auction, it's currently owned by a bank.
