Jay Z and Beyonce going to be in the market for a cleaning crew… after a mansion in New Orleans, they reportedly caught fire.
TMZ has confirmed that firefighters responded to a 1-alarm fire at the Spanish Baroque mansion in the Garden District on Wednesday evening. We are told that the fire department received the call around 6 p.m. and that just over 2 hours later the fire was completely extinguished.
At this point, the extent of the damage is unclear … but a 1-alarm fire is no joke. Apparently it took 22 firefighters to extinguish the blaze.
Fortunately, there were no injuries and the cause of the fire is unknown. Fortunately, a properly functioning smoke detector alerted firefighters to the blaze.
As to whether the Carters own the house… Curbed New Orleans reported in 2015 that the listed owner, Sugarcane Park LLC, shows that his mailing address is that of Bey’s management company, Parkwood Entertainment.
As for the house itself … it would have been built in 1925 as a Presbyterian church before being transformed into a ballet school. The 3 story home features a main residence, 3 separate apartments, 26 foot ceilings and a green roof.
