A bakery in Lowell was completely destroyed in an early-morning fire this week, according to Boston Restaurant Talk. Delicias Paisas Bakery, which specializes in Latin American pastries, caught fire as an employee was working to open the business around 4:30 on Thursday morning.
The bakery, located at 392 Bridge St. was later torn down after the building was deemed unsafe, according to the Lowell Sun. Officials cited a deep fryer as the cause of the fire, and there were no reported injuries from the incident.
The bakery first opened in 1996 and served an assortment of Colombian pastries and dishes, including flan, tres leches cake, assorted empanadas, arepas, and a dish called the "bandeja plate," which was served with chicarron, steak, fried egg, beans, rice, plantains, and chorizo.
Eater has reached out for more details on whether the bakery will reopen and will post any updates as they are made available.
