A local prison is back to normal after two inmates locked themselves in a cell.

This comes just a few weeks after a barricade situation at another corrections center.

Police say two inmates barricaded themselves in a cell at the Marble Valley Correctional Center in Rutland Wednesday and refused to listen to officers.

A special response team jumped into action and we're told everything was resolved without anything getting hurt.

During that time, the other inmates were put on lockdown.

Two a half weeks ago, the special response team was at the Southern State Correctional Facility in Springfield.

We're told there was an attempted takeover, with inmates fighting and barricading themselves.

An officer was injured.
