Two Dead After Attempted Prison Break in North Carolina

The North Carolina Department of Public Safety says fires were set in a prison sewing plant in the attempted escape.

An attempted escape from a North Carolina prison left multiple people injured Thursday, public safety officials said.

Several inmates tried to escape after the fire was put out.

The names of the dead employees have been released by the department, saying: "Correctional Officer Justin Smith, 35, provided security in the Correction Enterprises Specialty Sewing Plant".

"Members of the Prison Emergency Response Team have responded to Pasquotank CI from other state prison facilities and are assisting the local prison staff".

The prison near the northeast North Carolina coast houses almost 900 adult, male felons in both high-security and minimum-custody buildings.

Prison workers did several counts after the fire and all 725 inmates were accounted for, Acree said.
