Gas Oven?

Here are three photos from a bakery in Uzbekistan. I couldn't figure out who took the photos, but here's what the photographer said: They basically mold out the non (I think it's a typo and he or she means "nan." into a disc and slap it up into the inside of a beehive shaped oven, where it sticks until it is done. Then you collect your fresh hot bread!
I think the masonry oven is fired with gas, not wood. If you look closely you should be able to see gas tubes. I don't see any ashes or any trace of wood.
