HAZMAT teams called to Manchester prison; three staff members hospitalized




MANCHESTER, Ky. (WYMT) – Three Bureau of Prisons staff members at the Federal Corrections Insititute in Manchester were hospitalized Monday.

Officials say the staff members were all working in or near the facility’s mail room when they began feeling ill.

In a release from the Federal Bureau of prisons, officials say HAZMAT teams were dispatched to test the area and “determine whether a biological type substance may be present.”

It’s not yet known what caused the apparent illness. We do not know the conditions of the staff members.

The prison, which houses around one thousand offenders, is under “modified operations.”

This is a developing situation. We plan to update this story as officials release more information.
