6 taken to hospital from incident at Pasquotank prison

Employees injured in attempted prison break in Pasquotank Co

The fire broke out in the sewing plant area of the Pasquotank Correctional Institute, a high-security facility that houses 729 men, according to information from North Carolina Public Safety. Three other prison employees remain hospitalized in critical condition at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital. DPS said there were 725 inmates incarcerated at this time in close, medium and minimum security.

Four hours after the incident was first reported, the prison was still locked down, but the situation was "under control" and no inmates have escaped.

Inmates at the Pasquotank Correctional Institution in North Carolina started a fire on Thursday as part of an unsuccessful escape attempt, injuring 10 people.

Walker said the prison remains on lockdown as the Pasquotank Sheriff's Office and the State Bureau of Investigation begin a probe of Thursday's incident. Police have not identified those killed during the attempted escape. In such case, an argument between two inmates turned into a stabbing attack in which one prisoner stabbed the other multiple times in the upper torso.

The prison now houses 725 male inmates in close, medium and minimum custody.
