Stephanie Backus/FULTON SUN photo: Dr. Rob Havers spoke at the Westminster Memorial Church just after the bells finished ringing. The bells rang at the same time at the church as bells were in London to commemorate the firestorm created by the largest air raid against Britain in World War II. The time of the ringing — 12:15 p.m. in Fulton and 6:15 p.m. in London was the exact time the air raid began 70 years ago on Wednesday.
