One of Cincinnati's favorite artisan bakeries suffered a massive loss overnight when a fire broke out at its main production facility. 

Blue Oven Bakery founders Mark and Sara Frommeyer posted to Facebook that the bakery "where we do all of our major production for farmers' markets, restaurants, and grocery stores caught fire and burnt out of control, and the bakery did not survive."

Thankfully, no one was injured in the blaze, but they will be unable to attend farmers markets or make deliveries for an unforeseen amount of time, that includes things set for this weekend.

They said they will, however, still be able to provide bread for walk-up purchases at their Findlay Market location — albeit a very limited supply.

"You've supported us through thick and thin for the past 13 years, and once again we'll rely on your support at Findlay Market in order to make it through this difficult time," the Frommeyers wrote. "It is a great pleasure to serve our Blue Oven friends and family, and we are heartbroken we won't be a part of your week for the time being."
