Two-alarm fire at Hyannis bakery

HYANNIS - A two-alarm fire heavily damaged the Pain D'Avignon Bakery building at 192 Airport Road in Hyannis early Wednesday morning. The fire broke out about 4:10 a.m. and first units responding said heavy smoke was pouring from the building.

Mutual aid from several towns responded to the scene. Vehicles parked outside initially caused concern about people being inside but authorities were able to confirm with the owners that no one was there when the fire started.

Authorities saw it appears there had been a fire in the oven earlier in the morning which employees had removed material into a dumpster and they thought the fire had been extinguished. However investigators believe the fire caught insulation afire and spread into a ceiling. The dumpster was also smouldering when firefighters arrived. Hyannis firefighters were called back to the scene around noon Wednesday after the fire apparently flared up again, At right firefighters on the roof as smoke pours out vents, woman believed to be an owner looks on (inset).
