95 acres burn

PORTER- A grass and woods fire near Porter in East Montgomery County on Saturday kept numerous fire departments from Montgomery County, and even Harris County, as well as the Texas Forest Service and PHI Air Medical, who provided air support. All were busy for most of the day.

With the Porter Fire Department in command, dry foliage, low humidity and strong winds, the blaze was eventually contained.

Over half of the 200 acre wooded area was saved, along with a youth camp which had multiple structures.
