UPDATE: Firefighters doused a Wednesday afternoon blaze that damaged solar panels and a portion of the roof of a Ridgefield Park candle factory.
Flames and smoke brought not only village firefighters but also their colleagues from Hackensack, who were passing by following a call on Route 80 and could see the roof of Star Candle Company on Industrial Avenue from the highway shortly after 12:30 p.m.
The building was evacuated and no injuries were reported.
Hackensack firefighters used dry-chemical extinguishers to hold the flames in check until their village colleagues arrived.
The fire went to three alarms for coverage in the village, handled by Little Ferry firefighters.
