KSDK reported that by around 10:20 in the evening, the police cleared the prisoners from the windows. Soon after, firefighters put out the fire made by the prisoners.

According to reports, the prisoner then broke the window and set fire to the back of the building. Firefighters also put out the second fire.

According to KSDK, the chaos on Sunday night occurred two months later. About 117 inmates in the jail got out of their cells and caused similar damage, caught fire and smashed windows.
