Small Fire Closes Gym Temporarily
WILKES-BARRE — A small fire at Odyssey Fitness Center, 401 Coal St., Wilkes-Barre, has closed the gym until further notice.
Gym management advised patrons to check the fitness center’s Facebook page for updates on when it would reopen.
The fire burned part of a sauna in the women’s locker room but otherwise did little damage to the building, Wilkes-Barre Assistant Fire Chief William Murtha said.
An Odyssey employee used an extinguisher on the flames.
“They knocked it down, so there was not a lot of fire there when we got to it,” he said.
No one was injured in the incident.
