Several injured in N. Carolina mass prison break attempt

Public Safety officials in the state say there were multiple fires set at the prison sewing plant at the Pasquotank Correctional Institution.

A fire was set inside the prison and several employees were injured, according to the North Carolina Department of Public Safety.

The Pasquotank County Sheriff's Office told WAVY News they were responding to the "possible escape of prisoners". The sewing plant is a prison enterprise at Pasquotank Correctional Institute.

It wasn't immediately known how many employees were injured.

Northside Elementary, Elizabeth City Middle School and Pasquotank County High School were all placed on lockdown.

A follow up notification will be issued to update parents as to the lock down situation at our schools.

In order to keep students safe, those who ride the bus were brought back to schools because of the threat of inmates possibly being loose in the area.
