ANCHORAGE — This week's disturbance at Spring Creek Correctional Center in Seward was sparked by inmates upset over a directive to make their beds and clean their rooms, a top Department of Corrections official said Thursday.

"They took offense to that. They are our most disruptive inmates. They took that as a challenge they were not going to comply," he said. "They were like a kid throwing a tantrum."
