Prison workers and prisoners were taken aback a little bit today when a prison boiler threw a fit. Reports say that a malfunction with the boiler sent what was possibly steam mixed with a little smoke in the south central area of the complex.
Carson City Firefighters got over there pretty quick and discovered it was more steam than smoke and that something went sideways with the boiler. After checking things out for the better part of a half hour firefighters were confident that prison staff could handle the issue.
Firefighters got back into their trucks and command vehicles, drove through the southeast prison gate and headed back to headquarters.
