The fire that destroyed a Detroit-area home that once was pop star Madonna's childhood home Friday night, June 27 was dubbed suspicious. And while an investigation is still undergoing, authorities have suspected the possibility of arson.
The Oakland County Sheriff's Arson Unit and the Rochester Hills Fire Department are investigating the blaze, reported at 2036 Oklahoma at about 8 P.M. Friday as a passer-by noticed flames coming out of the unoccupied house and called the fire department. Rochester Hills Fire Chief Ron Crowell claimed the fire appears to have started in the living room.
And while the current owners were not at home and no injuries were reported, the fire caused extensive smoke and fire damage throughout the two-storey brick house.
Madonna reportedly spent some of her younger years living in the home. Even after she became a popular singer, she would sometimes return to the home. She, in the meantime, has become talk of the town as reports are abuzz that she's divorcing hubby Guy Ritchie.
