ERWINVILLE - Some West Baton Rouge Parish residents forced from their homes because of a chemical fire say the Air Liquide company owes them.

Authorities evacuated residents living within a mile around the Air Liquide facility after a fire last week ignited several acetylene containers in the plant. Several paid for hotel rooms, and now want Air Liquide to compensate them for the cost.

News 2's Sarah Rosario gets answers on what the company is doing in the wake of the fire tonight on News 2 at 5.
