CITY ISLAND - A neighborhood is recovering Monday after a fire ripped through two City Island buildings.

The flames destroyed two apartments and Filomena?s Pizzeria Sunday afternoon. Eleven firefighters were injured battling the blaze.

Residents say the pizzeria has been on the island for about three years. The building next door, which housed the two apartments, was being renovated. No one inside either building was injured.

Many residents hope the owners of the pizzeria rebuild.
