At the time of arrival, approximately 3:30 p.m., a source indicated that no one was harmed.
Gonzales, Sorrento and Ascension firemen are currently in the process of tearing down the remnants of what looked to be either a large shed or an apartment that burned down behind an unmarked home next door to 9471 Brittany Tower Road.
No official statement has been given by any fire department. However, at the time of arrival, approximately 3:30 p.m., a source indicated that no one was harmed. Acadian EMS was on standby in case firemen working to extinguish the fire would become injured in the process.
Gonzales Fire Chief Tracey Normand was suited up with his team in the middle of what could have been potentially much worse from the looks of things. A foam product looked to be helping put out the flames.
The home in front of the shed was said to be unoccupied at the time. The home looked to at one time have been a business. The sign hanging out front read Henry L. Chauvin Architect, A.I.A.
The right side of the building in front of the shed showed damage, and the house next door suffered some damage at least at the roof level, as well. Again, no statement was given as what may have been the cause of the fire.
