STATEN ISLAND, New York (PIX11) – Timothy Cardinal Dolan visited a Staten Island convent that was the site of a suspicious fire Saturday.
This visit was already scheduled before the fire to celebrate the 100th anniversary of a catholic charity. The fire broke out early Saturday morning on the campus of the St. Joseph Hill Academy. Four firefighters and two nuns suffered injuries. One nun jumped out a second floor window to escape the flames and suffered serious spinal injuries.
Over 100 firefighters responded to the blaze and had it put out in a half hour. The fire is still under investigation.
