The California Correctional Center is located in the rather bucolic burg of Susanville (often known as Susan's Village) in northern California. It used to be primarily a feeder facility and training operation for minimum custody inmates headed for fire camps.

This last Wednesday a prisoner attacked an officer in a dining room. As other staff responded more inmates jumped in and it ended up with about 30 inmates fighting with officers.

The fight was eventually broken up with pepper spray, less-lethal projectiles and plain old physical force. The most serious staff injury was a broken thumb. One inmate had his eye socket broken in the fight.
