Last night there was a deadly explosion in Sun Prairie. A contractor hit a gas main sparking an explosion at a building at the corner of Main and Bristol Street in Sun Prairie.
Firefighter, Cory Barr lost his life in the explosion. To help the family, you can donate here. At least 12 were injured. Bank of Sun Prairie is accepting cash donations to help everyone affected by this.
Cory's wife, Abby, posted on Facebook this morning thanking the police, firefighters, and everyone who helped throughout the night. “Trying to find the words, and not sure how I can. The husband, the father of my children, a son, an uncle, a brother, and so many other things was taken from this world tonight way too soon..."
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Sun Prairie Fire Department and the family of the fire fighter who died yesterday in the gas explosion in downtown Sun Prairie. The DCSO will be there to support the community and first responders in any way we can.— Dane County Sheriff (@DaneSheriff) July 11, 2018
