Police rushed to a North Carolina prison on Thursday after fires were set and several of the facility's employees were injured during an attempted escape, officials said. The notice came just as Pasquotank High School students were due to be released for the day and after dismissal times for the elementary and middle schools, said Tammy Sawyer, a spokeswoman for Elizabeth City-Pasquotank Public Schools.

The Department of Public Safety said Pasquotank Correctional Institute can house about 900 close, medium and minium custody inmates.
