The final three candidates for the position are Acting Chief Scott Williams and off-island applicants Jason Napier and Marty Fowler.
Napier and his wife Marcy live in Bellingham and have two children, Andrew who is 18 and Kathryn Rose, who is 16. When Napier was 18, he began volunteering as a firefighter/EMT with the Kent Fire Department and worked is way up to station lieutenant. "The experience I had there was plentiful," said Napier. "I had a lot of repetition to build my skills." He has experience with hazardous material and search and rescue teams, including the National Urban Search and Rescue out of Seattle. He also was a structural collapse technician, teaching at Pierce County for more than three years. Napier taught Community Emergency Resource Team training in Kent, where he worked as Deputy Fire Marshal. "This allowed me all kinds of new knowledge, skills and abilities," said Napier, who became division chief in Bellingham in 2008. Napier helped develop national fire codes during his time as Director of the Washington State Association of Fire Marshals, and earlier this year he accepted the position of Skagit's interim fire marshal. He recently completed one year at the national fire academy's executive program. "I'm sure there's a lot of local experience that can be tapped," said Napier about the Orcas Island community.

The fire appears to have started in the living room of 3009 Coolidge Drive, but more forensic tests would be needed to figure out the exact cause, said Bellingham Fire Marshal Jason Napier.
The structure itself appears to be salvageable, but there's extensive smoke and heat damage throughout the home, Napier said. Firefighters gave a rough damage estimate of about $70,000, about half the total value of the house itself. An electrical problem - a faulty lamp, wire or electronic - hasn't been ruled out as a possible cause, Napier said. It appears to be an accidental fire, he added.
