Small Fire Closes Gym Temporarily

December 30, 2018

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.
