Many of the prisoners in the stricken wing were first-time offenders.The cause was still being investigated, but an inmate who called national television from a cellphone said it began when a stove burner fell during a fight between inmates, and that prison authorities had waited an hour before contacting firefighters. "The riot police came in first and began to beat us," he said, "and later the firefighters came in."
