Fireworks blamed for Bellingham fire

BELLINGHAM — Investigators believe a fire that destroyed a century-old building on the Bellingham waterfront was started by fireworks.
Witnesses reported seeing gold-color aerial fireworks before a grass fire Saturday night that spread to the Reid Boiler Works Building.
The Bellingham Herald reports flames ripped through the vacant wood and sheet-metal building.
Four generations of the Reid family ran the business for 112 years, producing industrial boilers for locomotives, schools, boats and mills and later making canning machinery. The company closed in 2010.
