A fire has forced the closure of a popular bakery in Penrith.

The owners of Stafford Bakery in Stafford Street are uncertain when they will re-open after the blaze on Tuesday morning.

Fire and Rescue NSW responded to the blaze at around 3.30am on Tuesday.

“Our firefighters arrived on scene to find smoke pushing out front and rear doors of the premises,” a Fire and Rescue NSW spokesperson said.

“The shop was located within a row of shops, with a two level shop to one side, and a single level shop to the other. Our firefighters entered the premises and located a fridge/bain marie involved in fire.

“The fire had begun to affect he ceiling above, and firefighters quickly brought the fire under control a short time later.”

Firefighters worked to check for further extension of the fire, and to remove smoke from the premises to reduce the impact on the business.
