NAPLES, Fla.- Today marks one year since a raging fire destroyed part of the YMCA.
Lightning struck the roof of the building engulfing it in flames.
The fire charred the fitness area and basketball courts.
That part of the building has since been torn down and now a new world-class facility is under construction.
President of the YMCA Paul Theintine tells WINK News the two-story center will be open soon.
Theintine says thanks to the community's support, they've raised nearly $5 million to help rebuild the new center. To reach their goal, Theintine says the YMCA still needs to raise $1.3 million more.
