Mr Hollingsworth, who works at a vehicle leasing firm across the road from the bakery, said: “It was a small bit of smoke at 8:45/8:50 [but] within about five to 10 minutes there was thick black smoke coming over the top.

“The flames are still strong to the side and [I] can see through a big blue shutter where the flames are huge as well.”

The family business was founded in Coedpoeth, Wrexham, by a father and son in 1964.
