PLAINVILLE, Mass. (WPRI) — Crews battled a 2-alarm fire at the YMCA Family Pool Club at Park Terrace on Saturday. 

According to officials, firefighters arrived at 5 Berry St. around 5:00 p.m. and saw heavy flames coming from the clubhouse building. 

The clubhouse is now a total loss, according to the Plainville Fire Department. The building was under renovation and is a popular swimming spot for locals.
