A GYM in Coffs Harbour has sustained smoke damage following an early morning fire.

Rescue and fire crews from Coffs Harbour and Sawtell were called to the Genesis Fitness Gym in Park Ave around 6.15am after reports a fire had broken out in the sauna room.

Firefighters said the building was filled with smoke when they arrived on scene.

The sauna room sustained some fire and smoke damage and repairs are being made to a broken pipe.
