Fire erupts at mansion formerly owned by Henry Rowan in Westampton, NJ

WESTAMPTON, N.J. (AP) -- A fire has broken out at a mansion in New Jersey that was formerly owned by the late engineer and philanthropist Henry Rowan. 

   Firefighters battled the blaze Thursday night at the historic mansion in Westampton Township.

   Flames could be seen shooting from the roof.

   No injuries were reported. It's unclear what sparked the fire. There was no immediate word on how much damage was done to the now Burlington County-owned building.

   Another fire in June left smoke damage.

   Henry Rowan died last year at the age of 92. His gift of $100 million to what is now Rowan University was the largest ever to a public institution of higher education.
