26 December 2023

The childhood home of US singer Beyonce has been saved from burning down after emergency crews were called to the Texan home on Christmas Day.

The family, which lives at the two-storey brick home in Houston, escaped safely.

The fire was reported at about 2am on Monday, with the Houston Fire Department arriving at the scene within three to five minutes, the Houston Chronicle reported.

“We had it contained in about 10 minutes,” Houston Fire Department District Chief Justin Barnes told the newspaper.

Beyonce Knowles’ family bought the home in 1982 and lived there until she was five years old.

She was seen taking photos of the property when she was in her hometown for her Renaissance World Tour.

The home in the historic Riverside Terrace neighbourhood was built in 1946.

The cause of the fire was under investigation.
