The first fire happened at 5:47 p.m. at Two River YMCA, 2040 53rd Street. Fire officials say there were patrons inside the building at the time but were able to get out unharmed.

While the official cause has not yet been determined, fire officials say they believe the fire was related to a newly installed sauna.

Two people escaped without injury.

The Red Cross was notified and is providing housing to the residents. The structure is currently uninhabitable, according to fire officials.
