Description

Just before 11:30 p.m. on Friday the Porter Fire Department was dispatched to a commercial structure fire at the former Porter VFW Hall on Needham Road near Ford.which is now a thrift center. When they arrived there was fire through the roof and a second alarm was pulled. The blaze was finally brought under control with no injuries. Porter was assisted by New Caney, Splendora, Caney Creek and Houston Fire Departments. Porter Fire Chief Carter Johnson credited the local MUD for having good water pressure to supply the ladder truck. The fire was initially fought from outside as the roof was collapsing and was to dangerous to put firefighters inside. The cause is under investigation by the Montgomery County Fire Marshal's Office.
