Fight breaks out at private party held at N.Y. prison

Authorities are investigating a fight that broke out at a private party being held at a state prison in the Hudson Valley.

Officials say two teenagers were cut with knives and a third was hit on the head with a piece of wood during the brawl in a building at the medium security Fishkill Correctional Facility in Beacon, 60 miles north of New York City.

A spokesman for the Department of Correctional Services says the building is available for employees to rent for various activities. The official says a prison employee had rented the building for a family function and about 75 people were expected to attend.

Beacon police say they responded to a report of a large fight around 12:15 a.m. Saturday. No one has been charged, but police say their investigation is continuing.
