Tuesday's blaze broke out before daybreak at the off-campus home of the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity, Rowan University spokesman Joe Cardona said. The fire also damaged cars.
Four brothers living in the home were displaced, Cardona said. No one was hurt.
A GoFundMe page to help residents replace their personal items, including clothing and valuables, quickly broke its goal of $6,000.
