A Twin Cities LA Fitness is closed after a fire broke out Monday morning.

A spokesperson with the city of St. Louis Park said the fire closed the location at 3555 S. Hwy. 100 before it had opened for the day.

The department is still trying to determine what started the fire, but said Monday afternoon they were investigating the incident as a first-degree arson case.

Firefighters went to the scene around 4:15 a.m. on a report of smoke coming from the facility and found that a fire was active, with a sprinkler going off. 

The city fire department, along with Minnetonka, Edina, Hopkins and Plymouth fire departments, found multiple areas that were on fire inside the facility.

The blaze was extinguished by the fire department. The spokesperson said there were no injuries and the building was unoccupied at the time.

The gym will remain closed Monday. It's unclear if the fire will affect operations beyond that.

The fire department is asking anyone who has more knowledge of this incident to call police at 952-924-2600.
