— A Robeson County home owned by the mother of the late rapper Tupac Shakur was completely gutted by fire Friday night.

Crews investigated the fire that ripped through Afeni Shakur-Davis’s house at 2870 Trevor Lane in Lumberton.

About 25 firefighters from three stations were on the scene. No one was in the house at the time of the fire, and there were no injuries.

The house was considered a total loss due to the massive smoke and fire damage, officials said.
