No parent ever wants their children to experience suffering that has lifelong consequences, but for one Bellingham family, that is exactly what happened.
On the morning of one New Year's Day, an electrical fire broke out in the walls of the home of a Bellingham family with two young daughters. The family was renting the home. Traced to an electrical problem in the walls, the fire quickly took over. The fire was so hot it burned the fence across a concrete walkway outside the home, and completely destroyed the house. Receiving the most severe injuries of all the family members, the young girls sustained burns and injuries that will have lifelong impact.
Bill negotiated a settlement for the girls, and created a trust that will help sustain them for decades.
