Others also saw a figure running away from the estate, "My neighbor around the corner, she saw a dude jump over the fence on the backside of Harmony and Eight." Calls about a fire started pouring in around 6:15 PM on Wednesday as the fire department headed over to the plush Garden District of Louisiana City.
A total of 22 firefighters were deployed at the location, and it took them more than 2 hours to settle down the flames. An agent of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tabacco, Firearms, and Explosive dropped in after to assist in the investigation. Fortunately, no one was injured or home at the time of the incident.
The Real Price of Beyoncè's New Orleans Mansion
Beyonce's New Orleans mansion is a historic estate that is estimated to be around 2.4 million dollars.
Acquired by Sugarcane Park LCC in 2015, the estate is currently managed by Bey's mom, Miss Tina. According to New York Post, the house was built as the Westminister Presbyterian church in 1927 and spans across 15,200 square feet.
In 2013, the six-bedroom and six-and-a-half bathrooms mansion had been marketed for $2.5 million by its previous owner- Sandra C. McNamara.
However, city records in 2015 show that the "Lemonade" singer had purchased it for the nominal price of $100.
