One firefighter killed; several more people injured
Downtown a disaster area
Huge fire and explosion just after dinner / supper hour at 7 Tuesday evening (07-10-18) in Sun Prairie, the Squire’s old stomping grounds. Main and Bristol Streets are the heart of my old home town. That’s the old city hall pictured at right. The new city hall is a couple blocks to the east and the city council was meeting. Fortunately, the gas leak was reported a half-hour earlier so that people could be evacuated. First responders are dong an excellent job. Many of our family members were and are SP volunteer firefighters.
As the block may have looked Tuesday, July 10, at 6 p.m.:
