An explosion and small fire inside one of two industrial-grade ovens Sunday has temporarily closed the Captain’s Bakery and Grill on West Bay Road.

Cayman Islands Fire Service crews responded and found that the oven had been “severely damaged” by the blast and small fire. No one was injured.

Acting Senior Divisional Fire Officer James Bodden said Monday that the restaurant would remain closed until firefighters conclude their investigation.

He said that would likely take at least a couple of days, as restaurant owners were calling in a technician from Jamaica to review the incident.
