Does anyone know what happened at Sam's today? Possible fire?

This is reported on the online news:

Sam’s Club in Lady Lake was evacuated at about 11 a.m. today after smoke was reported.

Lake County Fire Rescue and the Villages Public Safety Department responded to the scene.

A faulty air conditioning unit was blamed.

Three people were transported to local hospitals.

My friend Carol and I were there today. Our carts were filled to the brim when the alarm sounded. We evacuated. Nothing crazy. We went out to lunch and the store reopened in less than 90 minutes. We went back and bought all our goodies.

@BobandMary is right, can confirm. Nothing serious, but I saw some people were terrified after hearing the alarm siren.

Something like that happened at the Old Mill Playhouse a while back when I was watching some movie that they had to stop half way through. Scary when you do not know what is going on. The people there acted in a very responsible way.
