Ludacris' Atlanta House Catches On Fire

A fire broke out at award-winning rapper/actor Ludacris’ home just South of Atlanta Wednesday night. The fire, described by authorities as a “significant fire,” destroyed the residence’s pool house, but did not affect the main structure on the property.

The fire left some property damage but no injuries.

According to Fulton County Fire Department spokesman Gregory Chambers, the fire was first reported by a neighbor, even before the alarm system at the home was triggered.

Authorities arrived at the scene on DeMooney Road near College Park around 11:30pm and were able to put out the fire within 30 minutes.

Ludacris was in New York at the time of the fire, where he is scheduled to host a private “screening” for his forthcoming album Theater of the Mind, which hits stores November 11.

A male relative was in the main house’s basement, but was not injured.

At press time, authorities were still attempting to identify the cause of the fire.
