At least sixteen persons have been confirmed dead, so far, following the fiery blaze that engulfed the Camp Street prison in Georgetown earlier today.

The body count has been increasing over the past hour as investigators conduct a search inside the prison where the deadly riot started.

Sources indicate that more bodies could be found in the debris, as the investigations continue.

Commander of police  ‘A’ Division, a short while ago, confirmed that the investigators are continuing their searches in the area where the fire is believed to have started.

Fire broke out again at the Camp Street Prison around noon today after inmates set fire to mattresses and an area of the prison.

INews understands that a number of prisoners were injured, while some of them received severe burns about their bodies. Those injured were rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation.
INews will provide more details soon.
