WARM MINERAL SPRINGS — About 20 units from five local fire departments responded to a three-alarm blaze in the Warm Mineral Springs community Tuesday morning.

A Sarasota County employee working in a block away smelled smoke from the house fire at 10:45 a.m. and called 911. According to Sarasota County Fire Department Battalion Chief Leigh Flynn, the worker then went to the house and entered the home, in the 100 block of Tegastas Street near the intersection of Matanzas Avenue, to check if anyone was there. When he opened the door, a dog ran out of the house.
