Fire Breaks Out At State Prison Complex

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Firefighters were called out to a state prison Sunday morning after a small fire broke out. 

A spokesperson said the fire was in the administration building of the Turney Center Industrial Complex in Hickman County. That building is not attached to the prison and the fire was never a danger to inmates.

Officials said there was a lot of smoke in the building, which could indicate the fire was electrical in nature. Visitation at the prison was postponed while crews investigated.
