WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Authorities say two inmates were treated for minor smoke inhalation after a fire was started inside of a cell at the Sedgwick County Jail.

The Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release that an inmate started the fire early Thursday. The release says deputies extinguished the fire, and the other inmates in the pod were moved because of the smoke.

Authorities are investigating and plan to present the case to prosecutors for charges.
