A southwest Topeka exercise facility was evacuated briefly Tuesday morning after smoke was found in the lobby, authorities said.

The Topeka Fire Department was sent around 6:20 a.m. to the Southwest YMCA, 3635 S.W. Chelsea Drive.

Topeka fire officials said at the scene that the smoke came from a hot belt on an air-conditioning unit.

The building was cleared of the light smoke and patrons were allowed back inside the building around 6:45 a.m.

Aside from the air-conditioning belt, no damage was reported.
