Eminem 's childhood home, which is pictured on the cover of his latest The   Mars hall Mathers   LP 2, was burned in a fire on Thursday, according to USA Today .

The fire inside the boarded-up , two-story bungalow, which is located on Dresden St. near 8 Mile in Detroit, began around 6: 20 p.m. Fortunately,  the Detroit Fire Department responded to the call and extinguished the blaze on the second floor before it spread to the rest of the house.

Public records show the  767-square-foot home was listed as the address of Eminem’s mother, Deborah Mathers , from 1989 until 2003, the paper reports.  The house has changed hands several times since then.  It's currently owned by the Michigan Land Bank , a state authority which manages vacant properties.

It remains unclear how the fire started inside the abandoned home.
