Bates says Riley didn't smell smoke or hear the smoke alarm going off.
After receiving the call, Riley dashed upstairs and shut a door to the burning room.
Firefighters arrived on the scene and quickly put out the blaze. The damage was limited to the exercise room and an adjoining office.
A fire marshal blamed the fire on an electrical malfunction in the exercise room.
