Responding to a 6:32 p.m. alarm, firefighters found an established fire at the fitness center on Kekaa Drive in the Kaanapali Resort, said Fire Services Chief Rylan Yatsushiro.

The fire possibly started in the sauna area, he said.

Engines from Lahaina, Napili and Wailea responded as well as a ladder, hazmat and rescue crews and a battalion chief, Yatsushiro said.

The fire was declared under control at 8:45 p.m., he said.

With firefighters still on scene at about 9 p.m., Yatsushiro did not release a cause or damage estimate Wednesday night.
