BUCKEYE, Ariz. —Eleven inmates at an Arizona prison were injured after a fight broke out at a complex west of Phoenix on Saturday afternoon, a state Department of Corrections spokesman said.
One inmate was airlifted to an area hospital, four were taken by ambulance and another six were taken off-site by corrections department staff, spokesman Barrett Marson said.
The fight started between two inmates at the Lewis prison complex after lunch, and mushroomed to include an unknown number of inmates, he said. Weapons were involved in the fight, but Marson declined to say what type they were or how many were used.

Never miss a local story.
SALT LAKE CITY — Salt Lake City has been selected as one of four finalists to host the 2012 Republican National Convention.
The Salt Lake Tribune reports that the Salt Lake bid committee was notified of the decision in an e-mail late Friday.
Committee Chairman Jeff Hartley says the 2002 Winter Games in Salt Lake showed the city can successfully host such a large gathering.
Salt Lake will host a Republican National Committee team in the spring that will review the site. The RNC is expected to make a final pick by early May.
A GOP committee met in Hawaii on Friday to narrow the field to four cities.
It was not immediately known what other cities were selected as finalists.
