Work is underway to clean the pipes at a state prison hospital in Franklin County after more inmates contracted Legionnaires' disease.

Two more inmates at the Franklin Medical Center have contracted the virus, bringing the number of cases since summer to four.  All the showers in a portion of the hospital are being flushed and faucet filters will be replaced.
