ONLY ON CVP: Two children playing with candles accidentally ignited a fire that destroyed the upper half of a 2½-story house in Palisades Park last night.

Both the youngsters and their parents got out OK, Police Chief Benjamin Ramos told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .

Leonia’s FAST team and Ridgefield firefighters joined their colleagues at the Hillside Avenue blaze, between West Edsall Boulevard and Ackerman Place, which broke out just after 11:40 p.m.

The lower half of the house sustained severe water damage, Ramos said.
