SCHUYLER, Neb. (AP) _ A bakery in downtown Schuyler has been heavily damaged by fire, but firefighters were able to keep the flames from spreading.

The Columbus Telegram reports the fire was reported around 8:45 p.m. Saturday. Schuyler Fire Chief Brad Sock says the building that caught fire was used as a bakery and kitchen for Tienda Mexicana Chichihualco across the street.

Sock says the fire was an accident caused by cooking in the kitchen. Firefighters from Schuyler, David City and Howells worked for roughly an hour to extinguish the fire.

The building sustained roughly $75,000 damage and nearby Homestead Bank sustained some smoke damage. But there weren’t any injuries.
