There was a huge fire in Old Town Bellingham early this morning. I learned of it via Facebook where my friend John Stark posted some amazing pictures he took of the fire in full burn. We were in the area this afternoon and the building was still smoldering. The amazing thing is that the firemen were able to keep the fire away from the adjacent buildings. The blue building behind the one that burned houses a bunch of art studios. My friend and former teacher Lorna Leibert has her studio there. Too close for comfort.
