PHOENIX, Ariz. (Legal Newsline)-Authorities are investigating a fire that broke out at Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard's home here early Tuesday morning.

Fire crews were called to the Democrat's home early Tuesday morning, officials said. Preliminary reports say the fire might have been caused by a power line that either arced or fell.

The blaze broke out at about 5 a.m. inside a detached garage, which is used as a workshop and storage area.

Although there were no injuries, the Goddard home's garage had substantial damage. The attorney general was home when the fire happened.
