A DPS building under construction caught fire Monday morning.

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Firefighters are battling a fire at a DPS center under construction in north Houston.

It's happening near the intersection of Dewalt and Veterans Memorial. According to HFD, crews arrived to find heavy smoke and fire coming from the building.

"I was walking and I heard a big old boom and I came out here and I saw fire," said witness Al McDonald. "They say they were welding."

Houston fire officials have gone defensive on it, as they're concerned about a possible wall collapse.

We have a crew heading on the scene and will post any new information as we get it.
