Two people sustained minor injuries in a small explosion at Del Buono’s Bakery in Haddon Heights Wednesday afternoon.

Responders from four local fire departments — Haddon Heights, Audubon, Barrington, and Mt. Ephraim — arrived at the 300 block of the Black Horse Pike around 2:40 p.m., said Haddon Heights Fire Chief Michael Kinky.

Kinky said the impact of the blast was concentrated in the area of a large oven.

Those injured in the incident were treated at the scene and then released.

A message on the Del Buono’s website announced, “Small equipment fire, we will be closed for a few days. Thanks for your patience.”
