Fire in the prison cell: Inmate starts fire, treated smoke inhalation

One prisoner receives treatment for smoke inhalation after starting a fire in his Northward prison cell.
Prison and Fire Services leaders continue to investigate.
According to a prison statement, the fire happened Thursday (11 October.)
An unnamed inmate lit a small fire within his cell. The fire was quickly extinguished by prison staff.
Fire Services also responded to the fire and confirmed it was fully extinguished. Prison Director Steven Barrett said it could have been worse.
“Fire has the potential to create destructive levels of smoke and within a prison environment, the risks associated with this are significantly amplified. I am extremely grateful for the swift intervention of the prison staff in dealing with the situation,” Mr. Barett said.
Cayman 27 asked for more details on how the fire was started. But Mr. Barett declined to say anything further until a full review is completed.
