A fire at an Ascension Parish business forced several nearby homes to be evacuated early this afternoon.

Fire crews were called to Double-S Sandblasting & Paint on state highway 74 in Gonzales this afternoon.  Witnesses said the company's warehouse where paint and chemicals are stored caught fire, and that people living near it were asked to evacuate.

Sheriff Tony Bacala said no one was injured in the fire, and that HazMat crews were monitoring the scene because of the chemicals that were burning.
