Several businesses in Irondequoit are cleaning up after a fire. It happened around 3 a.m. Tuesday at the Planet Fitness Plaza located on Ridge Road.

The fire department says the automatic alarms at Planet Fitness sounded and alerted 911.

When firefighters arrived, they found a fire in the lower portion of the plaza inside
the offices at Lifetime Health Medical Group. The fire was put out, but smoke and water damaged the other medical offices there.

Smoke damage also forced Planet Fitness to temporarily close.

"They are retrieving vaccines to destroy. Lifetime Health is dealing with their suppliers. Most of the files are all kept on computer; there were no patient files lost."

It's unclear how long the medical offices will be closed.

Planet Fitness clients are encouraged to call ahead to see when it will reopen.

The cause of the fire has not yet been determined.
