BUTTE — Butte Historical Memorials Inc. plans to release a living history series with six episodes that look at a different angle of the historical event to mark the 26th anniversary of the Kenyon-Connell Warehouse explosion which resulted in the deaths of 58 people.

"We had community members portray survivors, kind of took a different spin on it, they portrayed survivors of the explosion and told their story," said Lindsay Mulcahy, the vice-chairman of Butte Historical Memorials.

The miniseries will be released every Tuesday and Friday on the Butte Historical Memorials Facebook page and YouTube channel.
