Knoxville (WVLT) -- We have received an update on the Friday morning fire at Knoxville's downtown YMCA.
"Y" officials tell us they could re-open by May 14th, two weeks from this coming Monday.
The fire broke out early Friday morning in the buildings sauna.
Crews put it out quickly and no one was hurt, but the "Y"'s insurance agency says the building suffered massive smoke damage.
Total clean-up may cost more than 300-thousand dollars.
Members of the downtown YMCA can use any local "Y" while crews repair the old building.
