Fire destroys historic bakery and market in Coweta County

An historic building that housed a bakeshop and market in Coweta County was hit by a large fire Wednesday evening - destroying the structure.

Firefighters were called to the Heirloom Market Co. and Bakeshop just after 6 p.m. Coweta Fire Chief Robby Flanagan in a Facebook post said after ensuring people were evacuated, responders had to go into defensive mode against the blaze.

Fire rescue and Sheriff’s Office deputies were to stay on-site through the night. Cause of the fire is under investigation.

The building is considered a landmark in the county. Original foundations date back more than 100 years. Additions expanded the property over the years, with its current version housing the bakery and other businesses.
