The lounge will be closed for the foreseeable future and has been noted on the SkyTeam site. Matthew from Live and Let’s Fly reports that eligible premium cabin and SkyTeam passengers with access can use the IGA Lounge at Istanbul Airport (IST).

Anthony’s Take: The cause of the fire has not been released. Luckily, it was contained and did not shut down the airport.
