Fire Hits Morehead City Bakery

A bakery in downtown Morehead City is closed after a morning fire today.

Fire broke out around 8:30 a.m. at Alex & Brett Custom Bakery. One of the owners, Brett Jellerson, got to work about a half hour early and was working on the computer when he notice black smoke coming from the air conditioning vent.

Jellerson call 911 and firefighters quickly put the fire out. He says it could have been much worse had he not come in early today.

The Carteret County Health Department has to inspect the bakery before it can reopen. Jellerson is hoping they can reopen tomorrow.

    Oven?....A/C? That's just pure ignorant of you. How did you surmise that was the cause? Duh.....Are you a Fire marshell or what. LOL, you're too funny.

    Had to be one of the two that caused the fire. Sounds like the oven was turned on to preheat. So, it wouldn't matter if someone arrived early or not.

      Read the article. It clearly says it was smoke coming from the air conditioning unit. No mention of an oven in the story..

      What does the oven have to do with anything? If the hamster wheel inside the A/C unit seizes, it begins to smoke. The motor keeps trying to turn the wheel but cant and eventually overheats and catches fire.
