A fire early Tuesday morning has closed East Hampton Indoor Tennis on Daniel’s Hole Road in Wainscott, although the facility’s owner, Scott Rubenstein, announced on social media he aimed to reopen this weekend.

When East Hampton Fore Department chiefs and officers arrived on the scene they discovered flames in the corner of East Hampton Indoor Tennis’ office space, calling in Sag Harbor’s Rapid Intervention Team to the scene with the Springs Fire Department on standby. The fire, likely caused by a corroded pipe carrying propane gas — was extinguished and only damaged the main indoor tennis facility.
