Flames ripped through the roof of the Delta Sigma Phi building on April 20 at Illinois State University.
That's the word from fraternity officials after a fire started in the house off campus last month.
Two dozen residents rushed from the home in downstate Normal April 20 when the fire broke out. Mark Zappa, a fraternity alum who manages the building, said they are "definitely going to rebuild."
Zappa said the structure is fine, but a new roof is needed. The fire was limited to the attic.
Normal, Ill., firefighters ruled out arson and lightning as a cause of the blaze and are calling it accidental, according to The Pantagraph.
The building is valued at $600,000, and about $100,000 in personal property was lost in the fire.
The fraternity house did not have a sprinkler system but was scheduled to get one this summer as mandated by a state law that takes effect in 2013.
Of Delta Sigma Phi's 70 active members at Illinois State, about a third lived in the home.
