A fire has destroyed a bakery which produces one of Donegal's most iconic brands.

The mystery fire broke out at Bacus Ui Bhaoill in Fintown yesterday.

Firefighters rushed to the scene of the blaze at the popular bakery.

However, it is understood that while the fire is now under control, severe damage has been caused to the building.

Thankfully nobody was hurt in the blaze.

The business was started by local man Sean O Baoill at his original family home back in 1984 after he spotted a gap in the market.

The bakery supplies confectionary to shops across Donegal and is a hugely popular local favourite.

A number of local people are employees at the bakery.

A full investigation has been launched into the cause of the blaze.
