    The scene where a disturbance was reported at the Rhode Island Training School in Cranston.

    State officials say five people were taken to the hospital and three others were injured after a disturbance at the Rhode Island Training School.

    The Department of Children, Youth and Families said Thursday that three staff and two juveniles were treated and released from a hospital late Wednesday. It says three additional staff members were injured but not taken to a hospital.

    The agency did not release details of what happened at the Cranston facility, which houses juveniles facing charges or convicted of a crime.

    State police are investigating, and DCYF is also reviewing what happened.

    Police were called to the center in May after four workers were injured in a melee, and two residents tried to escape.
