HOUMA - A Walmart store was evacuated Sunday after a man ignited a chemical fire, the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's Office said.

WDSU reports there were no injuries.

Investigators said the incident began about 4 p.m. when deputies found a container on fire with thick smoke in the air.

The Sheriff's Office said additional testing will be done to determine the nature of the chemicals.

Authorities say they are seeking a suspect about 30 years old in connection with the incident.
