SARASOTA COUNTY, Fla. — Mildred Lentini, 92, has lived in the Lido Regency Condominium for 20 years. She and other residents of the beachfront condo a few blocks from St. Armands Circle would hardly expect a forced evacuation because of a fire from a suspected methamphetamine lab in their building.
But Lentini, who needs a wheelchair, found herself being carried down the condo's steps by firefighters, who ordered the building's evacuation Tuesday morning because of concerns oxygen tanks and hazardous chemicals in a 12th-floor unit could explode.
