(Updated at 3:40 p.m.) A large fire department response is on scene at the Ballston Quarter mall for a fire on the third floor of the building.
Initial reports suggest that the fire was in a sauna inside the men’s locker room of the Onelife Fitness gym. Light smoke could be seen coming from the roof of the gym near the Ballston pedestrian bridge.
A larger response was dispatched to the mall after the first firefighters on scene confirmed a “working fire” inside the sauna. The flames have since been brought under control, according to scanner traffic.
So far no injuries have been reported. Wilson Blvd is currently blocked in front of the mall.
The gym was evacuated due to the fire. Patrons in their exercise gear could be seen standing around in other parts of the mall.
Firefighters are now starting to set up fans to remove the thick smoke that has filled the gym.
#UPDATE – fire is OUT, crews are working to ventilate the structure.
