Four inmates are being treated for minor injuries after a disturbance Friday at Lanesboro Correctional Institution.

Officials said a fight among inmates erupted in a dining hall at lunchtime and correctional officers brought that situation under control and returned inmates to their cell blocks. 

A short time later, fighting among other inmates began in one cell block and resulted in four inmates receiving minor injuries.

Three inmates are being treated at a local hospital and one by prison medical staff.

The State Bureau of Investigation is assisting the Polkton Police Department in investigating the incidents.
