ST. PETERSBURG — About 100 people were briefly evacuated from the Renaissance Vinoy Resort and Golf Club around the lunch hour Tuesday after a malfunctioning air-conditioning motor created a smoky smell.

About 26 firefighters in a dozen vehicles arrived at the hotel shortly before noon and began searching for the source of the odor. There was no smoke visible outside the Vinoy.
