OGDEN, Utah — Topper Bakery, at the corner of 25th Street and Monroe Boulevard, caught fire Monday night and could be a total loss.

By all accounts, it is a beloved bakery in Ogden but now is closed indefinitely.

Fire officials say they got the call around 10 p.m. They tried to fight it from the inside but had to switch to a defensive position from the outside as the flames shot up into the air from the roof.

Reports said no one was injured or inside at the time of the fire. 

 

“It will be quite a while before the fire investigators get in there, dig through the rubble, and come up with a determination of cause,” Ogden Fire deputy chief Mike Slater told KSL TV photographer Derek Petersen on the scene.

Slater said the bakery was a staple in the community. It was known for tasty breads and custom wedding cakes.

“They supported us in our city functions in our city picnics and stuff like that, so there’s a good relationship between Toppers Bakery and the city of Ogden. So we’re devastated about what happened to them tonight,” he said.

Fire officials say the building is a total loss.. with damage estimated at over 250-thousand dollars.

The bakery’s Facebook page posted an update Tuesday morning.

“It is with a sad heart that I report that Topper Bakery caught on fire late last night! They are still trying to figure out the damages and what happened. Needless to say we will not be open for business for a while. Thank you for all of your support over the years! We will keep you posted on what is going on and when we can reopen. Sorry for any inconveniences this will cause so many of our customers.”

I have an idea for a future in-depth report. How do I tell you about it?
