To the LTA Community and Concerned LTA Patrons,
Recently many of you have inquired as to why there were so many fire trucks at the gym a few weeks ago. In late September, LTA experienced an electrical fire causing approximately $35,000-$45,000 in damage. First and most importantly, no one was injured. Additionally, there was no foul play involved. At the time of the fire, there was one employee present in the building. He was able to get the Fire Department dispatched quickly and that helped in reducing the damage.
The origin of the fire appears to have started with one of the electric signs. The sign started smoking, which in turn, activated our sprinkler system. Fortunately, the sprinkler system came on to control the potential fire damage but unfortunately, the water caused flooding and destruction.
The insurance people have been actively involved the last couple of weeks. The insurance company will continue to be involved along with the Our Restoration Company and First Choice Services, Inc. They will complete the investigation and complete the repairs. It’s our hope to have everything back to normal by the end of November.
Many of you graciously asked if there was anything you could do to help. As always, there is plenty of work to be done and volunteers are always needed. If you are interested in making a small donation toward the repairs, please send a check to:
