WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - Flooding, then the smell of smoke.

It led to an evacuation Wednesday afternoon at the Watertown Family YMCA downtown.

Officials say a first floor urinal flooded, leading to water making its way through three floors, including the basement.

That’s where staff then began to smell smoke.

City firefighters were on scene mopping up and checking for any danger.
