Elvis Presley’s Former Home Catches Fire!
According to new reports, it looks like a fire has started at Elvis Presley’s former home. The firefighters that arrived at the residence fought the flames for a while before they got it under control.
The propriety in East Memphis was bought by the legend back in 1956, and according to a plaque outside the house, he used the royalties from Heartbreak Hotel to purchase it.
The sudden fire was made public by WREG reporter Stace Jacobson who took to Twitter to share that the fire department managed to get it under control in record time.
According to a few neighbors, the propriety’s attic was damaged by the fire.
Some took a few snaps in which the fire engine parked outside the house and the smoke coming out from the roof can be seen.
In reality, many fans don’t really associate him with the modest propriety but rather with his lavish iconic Graceland mansion. It is no doubt however that the small home was still a huge part of the legend’s history.
The plaque, that can be seen on the front of the home it says: "On March 20, 1956 Elvis Presley and his parents, Vernon and Gladys, moved into 1034 Audubon Drive purchased with royalties from his first million-dollar-selling record, Heartbreak Hotel."
1956 was also the year that really defined what was to become a successful musical career.
Currently, the house is the propriety of Mike Curb Family Foundations, which is dedicated to supporting music education and the restoration of historic music locations.
"In 2006, the foundation created the Mike Curb Institute for Music at Rhodes College to advance music-related preservation and research."
