You may or may not remember a 2011 post of mine about a beloved New Orleans staple:
Sadly, early yesterday morning a 5-alarm fire destroyed the Hubig's Pies facility at 2417 Dauphine St. in New Orleans.

Sunrise revealed total destruction of the place where for nearly a century bakers prepared millions of the fried fruit pies popular with generations of New Orleanians. Last year, the factory churned out as many as 28,000 pies a day.
As news of the fire spread, residents flocked to stores and left shelves nearly barren of the treats. And before firefighters could even declare the fire under control, the owners vowed: "We'll be back."
