A suspicious fire broke out on Friday at the Augusta, Ga., offices of James Brown Enterprises, where more than a dozen employees coordinate the concert dates for the Godfather of Soul. Investigators suspect arson, reports the Associated Press. Brown, who turns 67 on Wednesday and was appearing in Virginia at the time of the blaze, surveyed the damage on Saturday and pronounced it not as bad as he had feared.
