DICKINSON, Texas - Evacuations were underway at a Dickinson ISD High School Thursday after officials say a small fire started in a student's backpack, possibly related to a cell phone.
Dismissal was affected as a result of the small fire, and as a precaution, students were evacuated from the school. However, no damages or injuries were reported, and the fire was contained to the backpack placed in the trashcan.
Additionally, buses were delayed leaving, and parent pickup was affected by the fire truck in the school. However, school will remain in session for Friday.
