GLASSBORO - A Rowan University dorm room suffered water and smoke damage after a Friday morning fire, according to university officials.
No students were injured in a first-floor fire in Mimosa Hall that broke out about 11:15 a.m. and was under control by 11:45 a.m., according to university spokesman Joe Cardona.
Heavy smoke was reported in the building and heavy smoke showed from a window of the dorm room.
The fire started in a corner of a room and was quickly put out with a sprinkler, Cardona said.
Six students living in the dorm suite where the fire occurred will be relocated to empty rooms on campus, the spokesman added.
As of 12:45 p.m., all students were allowed back into the building except students living on the first floor.
