The Lido Regency Condominium in Sarasota was evacuated after an unoccupied
apartment caught fire Tuesday morning. Apartment 12B was being used as a
meth lab, and held oxygen tanks, compressed gas tanks along with unidentified
chemicals. Firefighters responded to the complex, located at 1700 Ben Franklin
Drive, at 8:30, and a hazmat team was brought in to remove a badly damaged
compressed air tank. It could have exploded. All 13 floors, some 40 tenants,
were evacuated, and residents were taken to a nearby Holiday Inn. Eight
firefighters were taken to Sarasota Memorial Hospital and treated for possible
exposure to the chemicals.
