YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: An electrical fire in a second-floor classroom forced the temporary evacuation of Ridgewood High School this morning.

Ridgewood firefighters snuffed the 7:30 a.m. blze with a fire extinguisher, confining it to a malfunctioning electrical heater.

However, smoke spread beyond the affected classroom, so firefighters brought in high-velocity fans.

No injuries were reported, and everyone was able to return around 8 a.m.

Traffic on streets surrounding the school was temporarily jammed but soon returned to normal.
