PORTER HIGH SCHOOL FIRE

Just before midnight, Porter Fire Department was dispatched to the Porter High School on Sandy Lane in Porter for an alarm call. When they went on location they had smoke visible. A full box was then dispatched bringing Porter, East Montgomery County, Caney Creek, South Montgomery County and Crosby Fire Departments to the scene. The fire was quickly controlled, however smoke filled the entire school. Montgomery County Precinct 4 was dispatched with an airboat to assist in putting positive pressure in the building to drive out the smoke. In addition, Crosby Fire was dispatched with BIG BLOW, also a large fan mounted on a trailer to assist. At this time the Montgomery County Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating. New Caney ISD officials are on the scene to determine the damage. We will update as we have additional details. Porter Fire Chief Carter Johnson said the fire was confined to the Cosmetology classroom by the sprinkler system. That classroom was damaged along with water and smoke damage in the school. Fire crews will remain on the scene until all the smoke has cleared. School Officials say although the school is closed today, some things that were planned will be delayed.
