Fire investigators are probing the cause of a fast moving fire that killed a disabled man on Staten Island.

The fire broke out in a two-story home on Laguardia Street in the Castelton Corners section around 4:30 a.m.

Joe Abdo was trapped in his bedroom.

Firefighters found him dead on the first floor.

Peggy Abdo tried to save her 68-year-old husband, but was pushed back by heavy flames.

The 64-year-old made a desperate leap out a second-story window and survived.

She is in stable condition and is being treated for smoke inhalation.
