A Garfield man lost nearly all of his belongings after his house broke out in flames overnight Tuesday and then rekindled before dawn.

More than $265 had been raised as of Wednesday morning for Rob Sasse, a Dumont native whose Garfield house is under renovation.

The Bergen County Prosecutor's Arson Investigations Unit responded to the Grace Avenue blaze, with members of the county sheriff's Bureau of Criminal Identification collecting evidence.

The attic fire first ignited just after 10:30 p.m., displacing a tenant, then kicked up again just after 5 a.m., blowing through the roof, responders said.
