No one was hurt in a small fire Sunday afternoon at the Nabisco bakery on the Southwest Side.

The fire was reported at the bakery in the 7300 block of South Kedzie at 2:32 p.m., according to Chicago Fire Department Cmdr. Curtis Hudson.

Crews arrived four minutes later and found a small fire under a conveyor belt, Hudson said. The blaze was quickly extinguished.

No injuries were reported and the bakery was not evacuated, Hudson said.
