Authorities said two of the dormitories at Telfair State Prison in south Georgia were on lockdown after a large fight Monday night.

Georgia Department of Corrections spokeswoman Gwendolyn Hogan tells WMAZ-TV that three inmates were taken to the hospital, but their conditions were not available.

Hogan said no staff members were injured and no inmates escaped.

She said investigators were at the prison late Monday night and the prison was under control. Hogan says no other information about the fight was available.

Officials from the Dodge County Sheriff's Office say their agency was called to help quell the disturbance.
