KINGSTON — Power lines fell on Ohio Avenue in Kingston Monday, causing a few small fires and cutting electricity to about 400 customers. Puget Sound Energy spokeswoman Allison Stanford said crews were on scene as of 4 p.m. and expected to have power fully restored by 6:30 p.m.

Wires were reported down near Sunnyview Lane shortly before 2 p.m. and caused several "spot fires" on the roadside, North Kitsap Fire & Rescue spokeswoman Michele Laboda said. Fire crews cleared the scene at about 3 p.m.
