With a wide variety of trucks to choose from, the cake shop in the town of St Helens can be a daunting task.
Photo: Supplied The shop is owned by the owners of a bakery, so the staff have to go through a long list of truck options before choosing their truck.
The bakery’s owner, David Smith, said the shop would have been a tough sell to any other bakery owner.
“It’s a good challenge to be honest, I have a lot of truckers,” Mr Smith said.
“The challenge is to keep the truckers in mind and the customer, but at the same time it’s not just a truck, it’s a vehicle.”
The bakery had about 60 vehicles at the time of the fire.
It’s not the first time the bakery has had to cope with a truck fire.
In 2013, another bakery in St Helen caught fire, and a number of trucks and other vehicles had to be towed away.
It was the second time in the past year the bakery had had to evacuate.
“We’ve had a couple of fires, and we’ve had other trucks burned,” Mr Harris said.
The fire in St Helena had left more than 60 people homeless.
“There’s not a lot that can be done for those people, there’s not much that can actually be done,” Mr Henson said.
St Helenes fire service spokesman Chris Henson says the bakery in the area has been evacuated after a fire in the nearby town of Tait.
“Our crews are on scene today and we’ll be back out tomorrow,” he said.
Mr Hinson said there was a risk of additional fires.
“They’re still burning in the vicinity of the bakery.
It is a risk we need to be aware of,” he told AAP.
“I don’t know how many people have lost their lives.
I’m sure there’s many more that have not been heard from, and unfortunately we’re not aware of that yet.”
Mr Harris’s family owns a cake shop, but he said the bakery would not have survived without the help of truck drivers.
“What you see on TV is what you get,” Mr Johnson said.
‘Crazy’ Mr Johnson, who runs the bakery, said he had not heard of any truck fire in his lifetime.
“This was one of the craziest days of my life,” he wrote on Facebook.
“Keep your trucks going and get it going again.” “
He added: “Thank you all for your prayers and support. “
Keep your trucks going and get it going again.”
He added: “Thank you all for your prayers and support.
I know you’re in my prayers.”
A cake shop and truck repair shop is one of many businesses to have had a major fire in Queensland.
In February 2018, an entire warehouse on Brisbane’s Sunshine Coast caught fire after an electrical fault.
A fire crew from Sunshine Coast Fire Rescue was able to put out the blaze in just three days.
