Folsom’s California Family Fitness experienced a black out Sunday evening around 7:52 p.m. after the electrical panel was tripped.

Division Chief Ken Cusano, of the Folsom Fire Department, said after investigating, they believe the cause was a copy machine inside the building that may have tripped the electrical panel.

“When it did that, it put the entire electrical system out inside the building and out in the parking lot,” he said.

The building was evacuated when the alarm system went off. Cusano said there also might have been some smoke.

The Sacramento Municipal Utility District came out and got the gym’s electricity up and running not too long after.

Cusano said after the electricity was back up, they didn’t find anything else suspicious
