Convent Fire Happened A Year Ago This Week
Fond du Lac Fire Chief Peter O’Leary took time during the one-year-anniversary of Holy Nativity Convent Fire to put out an appeal to anyone that might have information on the fire. It occurred on June 5th of last year. O’Leary says the owner has made necessary repairs to keep the building from being torn down. He says there was a great deal of damage to it. He says they would like to know who set the blaze so it is still an active investigation. He’s hoping in the year that has passed any one who might know something about the fire is now willing to share information about it with investigators. The 40 room convent was built in 1874.
