NEWARK - A home owned by Newark Mayor Cory Booker went up in flames the same night he delivered his State of the City address.

The home was not the primary residence of the mayor and had been purchased by Booker in 2009 with the plans to renovate and re-sell the property.

The Essex County Prosecutor's Office says the cause of the fire remains under investigation.
