Two crews from Preston were called to the fire last Thursday

"Also a massive thanks to everyone who helped clean up over the weekend and get us back up and running."

Fire crews were alerted to the blaze last week by a passerby who spotted flames in the window of the gym.

The building suffered smoke damage and fire damage to the store room, but nobody was injured during the incident, say fire services.

The cause of the fire is unknown.
