The Cross Timbers Family YMCA on FM 1171 in Flower Mound was closed Monday after an electrical fire early Sunday morning.
One treadmill, a television, the carpet and a six by eight foot area of drywall in the fitness center was damaged in the blaze, which started when the treadmill’s electric cord sparked and caught on fire, according to Tricia Meinhold, Executive Director.
“We did experience significant smoke resulting in soot residual in the west side of the building…fitness center, aerobics room, weight room and multi-purpose room,” said Meinhold. “We are in the process of cleaning up all of those areas.”
The facility was expected to reopen on Tuesday morning.
