Corrections officials placed parts of a south Georgia prison under lockdown after a fight involving several inmates.
Department of Corrections spokeswoman Gwendolyn Hogan said authorities locked down parts of Coffee County Correctional Facility after a fight on Saturday left several inmates hospitalized.
She said the inmates received non-life threatening injuries and were returned to the facility the same day after being treated at local hospitals.
Hogan would not say how many inmates were involved.
A spokeswoman for the Corrections Corporation of America, the private firm that runs the prison, did not return calls and emails seeking comment.
The prison is a medium-security facility with 2,628 beds.
