Madonna's Childhood Home Fire

Last Friday the house that Madonna grew up in caught on fire. It was reported in the Detroit Free Press as possible arson. The house is about 2 miles from where I work. I have seen the story on a lot of news websites now, but without any pictures.

So today, on my lunch hour, I drove over there. The local arson squad was there, so I just snapped a few on the run because they were outside.

Here they are ... the street and the house. No biggie, eh?

It's nice to know you can live in a nice, nondescript house and grow up to be friggin' MADONNA.

Did Glenn's house catch on fire too? ; )

Where's all the fire damage? They must have put it out quick.

Actually, it's probably a good thing the house looks OK in your pics. A $3M house down the street from me/my parents burnt to the ground in Feb. My curiosity got the best of me and I drove by. I had nightmares for weeks after that.

Arson? Keep us updated.

Looks like just "any old house" but obviously someone has a thing about Madonna to light a torch to it!
