CHICAGO (WLS) -- Eight maximum security detainees at Cook County Jail face arson charges in connection with a uniform-burning incident.
The sheriff's office said last month that the group set fire to special uniforms worn by inmates accused of sexual misconduct.
The detainees are said to have lit a wick in a microwave to burn the uniforms.
Smoke quickly filled the housing unit prompting an evacuation.
Four correction officers were hospitalized Saturday night after the incident. All injuries were non-life-threatening and the officers were released.
Videos of the incident were released.
