STILLWATER — One of Minnesota’s most secure prisons remains on lockdown three days after a fight broke out.

The Minnesota Department of Corrections said a brawl broke out among inmates on Saturday and the prison was locked down. Inmates are required to stay in their cells instead of going to work in the prison or participating in other programs.

Corrections spokeswoman Sarah Fitzgerald said the lockdown will continue until the investigation into the fight is done.
