At least two inmates have died and more than 100 other people injured in an apparent gas explosion at a county jail in Florida, according to NBC News.
Kathleen Castro, the county’s public information officer, confirmed the deaths to NBC News and said the both prisoners and corrections officials were among the wounded.
About 600 prisoners were in the building at the time. Uninjured inmates were being moved to other detention facilities and no escapees have yet been reported.
