Tukwila FD provided assistance as E311, E314, L311, A313, B311 responded for a total of 12 RFA personnel.  Residents reported that the occupant of one of the rooms barricaded himself in the room and threatened to burn the building down.  Residents also witnessed water coming out from underneath the room door and heard the room occupant yelling that he wouldn’t let anyone in the room.  Upon arrival RFA crews accessed the fire control room to address the fire alarm and water sprinklers.  Renton PD was called in to handle the resident that was barricaded in the room.  Upon investigation at the scene there was evidence the sprinklers were tampered with and no fire was found in the room.
