Fire Set At Regional Jail

An inmate set a fire in one of the cells in the segregation unit last night at the regional jail on the Old Black River Road. 

Acting District Chief Kevin Clynick says it spread to a mattress and was put out by jail staff before reigniting which then activated the automatic sprinkler system. 

There were no injuries.
City Police are investigating and the inmate is expected to be charged.
