9 inmates injured in prison fight

TERRE HAUTE Nine inmates were injured Sunday during a fight at the Federal Correctional Complex in Terre Haute.

The fight broke out about 8:30 a.m. in a recreational yard of the U.S. Penitentiary, the new, high-security facility in the prison complex on Indiana 63, prison officials said. The nine were taken to a local hospital and are expected to recover from their injuries, officials said. No staff members were hurt.

The prison was put on lock-down as a precaution, although officials say there was no threat to the community.

Prison officials declined Monday to release additional details.
