Fire Destroys South Jersey Home, Family on Vacation

A house was heavily damaged during a fire in South Jersey Tuesday morning.

Flames engulfed a home in the 200 block of Buckingham Court in Monroe Township, Gloucester County.

Firefighters say the blaze started about 3:30 a.m. in a downstairs front room and went up through the roof, causing a partial collapse.

The fire reached two-alarms before it was placed under control.

No one was inside the home at the time of the fire. Neighbors told NBC10 that the family was vacationing out of the country.

The home was heavily damaged.

The fire does not appear to be suspicious, fire officials said.

The cause is under investigation.
