The fire burned for around seven hours, from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.

No word yet on the extent of the damage or the cause of the fire.
Post ISD says there will be no school on Monday.
Damon Pool is a fifth grader at Post Elementary. He said he will miss more than his lost school supplies.
"It's really sad because think of the people who love to learn and all that," he said. "How are they going to get their education through a burned school?"
Garza County Judge, Lee Norman, has an answer.
"Those are buildings, those can be repaired and be rebuilt," Norman said. "We're really excited about our new facilities coming online. So again, those are buildings, but we're thankful no one was there today and everybody is safe."
