Anchorage, Alaska (AP) - The Alaska Department of Corrections says 62 prisoners took control of a section of the maximum security Spring Creek Correctional Center.
Corrections officers regained full control Wednesday morning in Seward after about nine hours.
The prisoners at 9 p.m. Tuesday barricaded the entry to their section and began destroying property.
Response teams from Kenai and Anchorage arrived at about 3 a.m.
The teams forced their way into the barricaded unit.
No staff or prisoners were injured. The department says every inmate was cleared by medical personnel and decontaminated.
A department spokeswoman, Sarah Gallagher, did not immediately respond to questions about what prompted the disturbance.
