Five Warren County inmates are under investigation after a mattress was set on fire inside of the Warren County Jail, according to the Vicksburg Daily News.
Jailers noticed smoke around 11:45 a.m. coming from one of the upstairs cell blocks. There were five inmates in that block who were relocated to another place in the jail.
Sheriff Martin Pace managed to put the fire out with a bucket of water. Vicksburg Fire Department was called in to check for hot spots.
“They are, all five, under investigation,” Pace told VDN. “The person or persons responsible for this should face additional charges.”
The suspects’ names have not been released.
