Historic mansion catches fire for second time

A fire broke out late Thursday night at a historic mansion in Westampton, for the second time.



The mansion was formerly owned by the late engineer Henry Rowan. Burlington County now owns the property.



There is no word yet on how much damage was sustained, or how the fire started. No injuries have been reported.



A previous fire in June had already destroyed the kitchen.



Henry Rowan died last year at the age of 92.



His gift of $100 million to what is now Rowan University was the largest donation ever given to a higher education institution.
