BRYAN COUNTY, OK------ It's been a little more than a week since dozens of inmates began rioting at the Bryan County Jail.

During the riot, a few inmates set fire to a trash can in the cell they were being held in and today, Bryan County Sheriff Ken Golden said the state fire marshal will be charging about three to four inmates with first degree arson for it.

"Arson in first degree is any type of fire that is likely to injure or kill someone," Sheriff Golden said. 

Sheriff Golden said these are felony charges which are punishable by a fine of up to $25,000 and/or prison time up to 35 years.
