North Kitsap Fire & Rescue firefighters were busy Monday afternoon, beginning with a planned multi-casualty training exercise in Poulsbo and wrapping up with a few preventable fires that were stopped before they reached dangerous proportions, according to NKF&R spokeswoman Michele Laboda.
Barring a challenge from a write-in candidate, Poulsbo Mayor Becky Erickson is unopposed for a second term as the Viking City’s chief executive officer. As mayor, Erickson is paid $68,991 a year. The candidate filing period for the Aug. 6 primary closed Friday.

A smoke alarm likely saved a man's life Tuesday morning, alerting his roommate who called 911 after the man apparently fell asleep with a lit cigarette to spark a fire that filled his room with noxious fumes, according to North Kitsap Fire & Rescue spokeswoman Michele Laboda.
