The Northwest and Alaska Seiners Association of Kenai says a number of large Alaska processors have dropped the MSC program because of costs and burdensome paperwork.

It was the first race for 25-year-old Laurel Gangloff in the Dollar Stock league at the Mitchell Raceway’s dirt oval track, and like so many other racers who have buckled up behind the wheel of a car on a race track, it wouldn’t be her last.

No injuries in house fire on Edmonds Street

Southeast Alaska News - Sat, 2014-01-04 15:54

Pete Jensen took this photo of firefighters setting up a ladder truck to send water onto an Edmonds Street house that caught fire Saturday morning.

A residential fire in downtown Ketchikan destroyed one home Saturday morning, and damaged two neighboring houses, but did not lead to any injuries.

The fire started after 9 a.m., and the first home was fully engulfed in flames as firefighters arrived. Both homes are located on one of Ketchikan’s boardwalk stair streets, making access difficult.

About six hours after the initial call, as crews were finishing up, checking for hot spots and covering neighboring property with tarps, City of Ketchikan Fire Chief Frank Share took a few moments to talk with KRBD’s Leila Kheiry about the fire. Click below to hear the interview.

At the time of the interview, addresses for the involved homes were not available.

Pete Jensen caught this image of a ladder truck dousing a burning home Saturday morning in downtown Ketchikan.
