BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Fifteen years ago today, the Olympic pipe line ruptured and exploded in Bellingham, killing two 10-year-olds and an 18-year-old.

Christ the Servant Lutheran Church reverend Eric Finsand says commemorating that sad day is a way to help people who were there.

 

Two services are scheduled for today.

The first is at 12:15 p.m. at the end of Racine Street near the totem pole.

Then at 7:00 p.m. Finsand will hold a service at Christ the Servant on Lakeway Drive.
