(CBS DETROIT) – Michigan Department of Corrections has regained control of a prison unit overtaken by inmates.

Prisoners who caused the riot at Chippewa Prison were taken to maximum security units Monday morning.

Authorities say a fight between three inmates started the riot.

Nearly 100 prisoners left their cells and approached an officer station, taking control of the unit.

MDOC is currently estimating the damage costs.
