On Monday, patrons at the Tokay Senior Fitness Center were forced to evacuate when a faulty control panel sent a treadmill up in flames.

According to The Fayetteville Observer, a report was made to a center employee around 1:30 pm when the machine began producing smoke.

In a news release, the Fayetteville Fire Department stated that all of the building’s occupants were safely evacuated prior to their arrival on the scene.
