Officials told the celebrity news website they are investigating what caused the blaze on the second floor of the 767-square-foot, two-story bungalow Thursday evening.
The house has changed owners about 10 times since the rapper's mother bought it in 1987 for $19,900. The bungalow was eventually abandoned and is currently owned by a bank, TMZ said.
