Andrew Wyrich, NorthJersey.com:

Firefighters responded to a paper recycling factory on 7th Street at approximately 6:30 p.m., Trentacost said, and found the fire burning in the middle of the structure.

A “mechanical issue” caused a “malfunction” on a ladder truck, Trentacost said. The three firefighters on the truck were unharmed when the ladder crashed onto the building. The cause of the malfunction is under investigation, he said.

The ladder truck was last passed an inspection in October, Trentacost said. The ladder truck manufacturer is assisting in the malfunction’s investigation, he said.
