The Ridgway Fire Department was called out to the Ridgway Commons late Tuesday night for a report of a structure fire. Upon arriving on the scene, firefighters used the department's ladder truck to get on the roof of one of the buildings, finding a burnt Chinese lantern as the cause of the 911 call. The department responded with four trucks, along with significant manpower.
