Hubig's bakery weighs options after July fire

Sep 11, 2012

A demolition project has started at the site of an iconic New Orleans bakery gutted by a fire in July.

Drew Ramsey, operations manager for the Simon Hubig Pie Co., tells WDSU-TV that the company hasn't decided where to rebuild the bakery that churned out roughly 100,000 fried snack pies every week.

A demolition crew used a crane Monday to pick through the wreckage of the company's building in the city's Marigny neighborhood.

Ramsey said many of its employees have found temporary jobs while the company weighs its options.

The July 27 blaze left its building a total loss.
