Insurance adjusters look at Ky. prison after riot

BURGIN, Ky. (AP) - Investigators joined by insurance adjusters have started going through what's left of a Kentucky prison after a fiery riot hospitalized eight inmates and forced another 700 to be relocated.

Kentucky Justice and Public Safety Cabinet spokeswoman Jennifer Brislin said Sunday the damage assessment could take several days. A probe of what prompted Friday night's melee would likely start later in the week.

Flames shot into the air during the riot at the Northpoint Training Center, a medium-security facility about 30 miles south of Lexington. Several buildings were seriously damaged and deemed uninhabitable.

About 500 inmates remained at the prison Sunday. Brislin says another 700 inmates were taken to other facilities across the state.
