Firefighters were called to 224 Avenue B shortly before 10 a.m. today when a fire broke out in the basement of Amor Bakery.

Battalion Chief Mastandrea said the official cause of the fire was still under investigation, but it’s believed that it was started by an oven in the bakery’s basement kitchen and then spread to the walls of the building. It took firefighters approximately 30 minutes to contain the flames.

At this time, there are no known injuries.
