BATAVIA, Ill. (AP) - Fire officials in suburban Chicago are investigating the cause of a fire at a warehouse owned by a candle company.

One firefighter suffered minor injuries in the Saturday evening blaze and was treated at an area hospital.

Batavia Fire Department officials say firefighters were called to the Candle Corporation of America around 7 p.m. and found fire and heavy smoke in the manufacturing area of the building.

Authorities say the fire caused a partial roof collapse, but the blaze was under control in about 30 minutes.

Fire officials were surveying the damage early Sunday.
