Dover, Ohio (WJER) - Dover firefighters say no one was hurt when a treadmill caught fire inside the YMCA wellness building. 

Lt. Brian Stewart says they arrived on scene a little after 5 pm Thursday to find smoke inside the fitness area. He says employees had already extinguished the fire using two extinguishers, and from there, crews just had to clear out the building and remove the source of the fire. 

Stewart says the Y will have to keep the wellness building closed off until a contractor can get rid of the smoke smell and clean up the dry powder that was used to clear the scene, which could take around 24 hours. He says they're not sure what caused the treadmill to catch on fire.
