Inmates out of cells and destroying property at Lansing prison
Categories: 

State prison officials say inmates in one cell house at the Lansing Correctional Facility got out of their cells and were destroying property. Prison spokesman Randy Bowman says the riot started about 3 p.m. Thursday when several inmates refused to return to their cells. 

More than six hours later, some inmates had given up or gone back to their cells but others continue to ransack offices, breaking windows and starting fires. 

Staff members escaped the cell house safely. Bowman says it's unclear what started the incident. No injuries have been reported.
