You need to take them out. Sounds like a fungal infection, I wouldn't eat any of the fruit if it has any ( not that you would). Spray with a diluted mixture of milk and water for a couple of days but me personally, would bin the plant. 

I never keep strawberry plants undercover, always outside. You need to ventilate those  plastic greenhouses, otherwise stale air builds up and you get problems with the plants.

If it's on the fruit, I wouldn't eat it.

If the milk and water doesnt help, bin the plant cos that will spread to other receptive plants.
