Now We All Know Courtney Love’s Home Address

There was a small fire in Courtney Love's New York City apartment early yesterday morning. Damage includes charred drapes, burnt bed linens, and the fact that now everybody in the world knows the embattled rocker's home address. The New York Times and Radar both published Love's precise West Village location while reporting on the minor blaze. It's 250 West 10th Street, in case you're dining at Corner Bistro later today and decide to pay her a house call.

Officials believe a candle placed near curtains in a fourth-floor bedroom started the fire, which has been deemed unsuspicious. Someone in the residence called 911 at 1:52 a.m. (both Love and a "male occupant" were home at the time) Thursday morning but the fire was pretty much extinguished by the time New York's Bravest arrived. Love may have done the firefighting herself -- she reportedly suffered a very minor burn on her hand, "almost like a sunburn" and refused medical treatment. Maybe she wanted to avoid giving everyone this image once again.

Love rented the townhouse in February, according to the New York Times, who reported the musician signed a lease for approximately $27,000 a month. Per the home's real estate listing, it's a "spacious yet intimate" 3,825-square-foot early 1800s Flemish Bond Merchants House that "is wonderful for grand entertaining!"
