Explosion at Bruegger's 2200 Penfield Rd 8/16/18

Volunteer firefighters were dispatched to the Bruegger’s Bagels located at 2200 Penfield Road at 0457 hrs this morning for the report of an explosion. The first arriving Chief Officer after making sure everybody was out of the structure reported smoke coming from the building with the front of the store blown out. Upon further investigation it was determined that there was an active fire inside the kitchen area.
When the explosion actually happened there were two employees were inside the structure who were able to exit the building prior to the arrival of responding units. Remarkably neither were injured.
Crews quickly extinguished the fire and secured the gas to the structure. The adjacent Sherwin Williams store sustained some damage to ceiling tiles as well as paint containers that were knocked off the shelves.
Penfield crews were assisted on scene by Fairport Fire Department while East Rochester Fire Department provided a fill in.
The explosion appears to have originated in the area of an oven. The exact cause of the explosion is being investigated by Rochester Gas and Electric and the County Fire Investigation Unit.
