LA Fitness Location Closed Due to Flooding

Courtney Cameron

An LA Fitness in Portland, Ore., has been closed indefinitely due to flooding from a burst private water line. The three-story club saw flooding and damages to the street-level lobby, locker rooms and children’s center, as well as to a below-ground cardio fitness space.

Portland Fire and Rescue was notified around 4:45 a.m. Monday, and arrived to find water gushing into the lobby and cardio room. Crews were not able to stem the water flow completely until around 6:15 a.m.

Responders told KOIN6News that one to two inches of water covered some of the lower-level treadmill bases, and at one point water in the lobby came up to a firefighter’s hip. The club’s basketball and racquet ball courts also have significant water damage.

As of Monday afternoon, the club’s website predicted closure through Friday at 5 p.m. A sign posted on the front door directs local members to use the Lloyd District location.
