CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say a man killed himself in a New Jersey hospital restroom after setting fire to his home.

The suicide occurred Monday afternoon inside Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Camden.

Camden County Prosecutor's Office spokesman Jason Laughlin told the South Jersey Times (http://bit.ly/1pEk1K2 ) no one was injured in the fire in Camden. Laughlin was withholding additional information about the address, the man's name and the manner of death.

The man was not a patient at the hospital.
