Diboll Volunteer Firefighters and other agencies are fighting a brush fire that began near H.G. Temple Intermediate and Elementary schools on Lumberjack Drive in Diboll and has been moving toward FM 1818, Diboll interim city manager Keith Wright said.

A forest service employee cuts a fire break in front of H.G. Temple Intermediate and Elementary schools.

“This wind is whipping it up back and forth,” he said.

A reporter on scene said neither campus appears to be threatened by the fire.

Several departments are helping the department battle the fire, including the construction crew working on the U.S. Highway 59 relief route, he said.
