Van de Kamp's Holland Dutch Bakers has turned off its ovens and laid off nearly all of its work force, but the 75-year-old company said Wednesday that it expects to resume baking soon under new ownership. A union official, however, expressed concern that the closing is permanent. Employment at the bakery, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy court protection Aug. 31, has dwindled from about 500 a year ago to the current skeleton crew of 20.

After 75 years of serving up goodies to generations of Southern Californians, Van de Kamp's Holland Dutch Bakers has filed for bankruptcy law protection. The privately held company continues to operate out of its landmark Dutch-style bakery uilding in Glassell Park, northeast of downtown Los Angeles, but has laid off more than 100 employees and owes back pay to many that remain, union representatives said Tuesday.
