KINGMAN, AZ (AP) -

The Utah company that operates the Arizona state prison at Kingman says inmates assaulted two corrections officers in a disturbance that a spokesman says was broken up quickly.

Spokesman Issa Arnita of Centerville, Utah-based Management & Training Corp. says fewer than a dozen inmates were involved in the incident Saturday.

He says the two officers were released from a hospital after treatment for minor injuries.

Arnita says the inmates involved have been taken out of normal housing and placed in detention.

He says the Arizona Department of Corrections' criminal investigations unit will investigate the incident for possible criminal proceedings.

A department spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for information.
