SARASOTA  - The Sarasota County Fire Department sent multiple fire engines to Covenant Life Presbyterian Church in Sarasota early afternoon.  

Firefighters discovered that a air handling unit had just produced smoke that lingered in some of the building's hallways and classrooms. 

"A pretty strong smell of smoke and a light haze so of course for something with this square footage we're going to go ahead and send some additional units," Sarasota County Deputy Fire Chief Wayne Balcom said.
