Question candlewax on brick fireplace hearth, how do I clean the oil stain?

A large wax candle melted onto a brick fireplace hearth and we have scraped up the wax, but are left with a grease stain. How do I remove this without making it larger or deeper in penetration?

Candle on brick

Excess wax will need to be removed by scraping. Vacuum up scrapings. You will need a solvent cleaner, blotting from outside the stain toward the middle to prevent spreading. DIY.com recommends Motsenbocker's Lift Off #2 http://doityourself.com/clean/candlewax.htm
