List: See which downtown Sun Prairie businesses are open after last week’s explosion

July 21, 2018

More than a dozen businesses in downtown Sun Prairie remain closed a week and a half after a natural gas explosion rocked the city July 10.

Several businesses that have locations downtown have found other locations from which to operate, while a few of the open businesses have limited their hours.

The explosion, caused after construction workers punctured a natural gas line, killed Sun Prairie Volunteer Fire Department Capt. Cory Barr, critically injured firefighter Ryan Welch, destroyed five buildings and displaced about two dozen families.

Gov. Scott Walker declared a state of emergency in the city and for Dane County Friday to direct state agencies to continue providing aid to the community.

The Sun Prairie Office of the City Administrator provided a list of the downtown businesses and their statuses as of Friday.
