The incident began at 1:30am when eight of 41 inmates in the segregation unit refused to return to their cells. Staff at the unit remained in a secure area while a response team was assembled.
There was no fire, however the inmates triggered a fire alarm which brought a response from the local fire department.
The Alaska Department of Corrections is initiating an investigation into this incident with the assistance of the Colorado Department of Corrections Office of Inspector General.
