Firefighter Killed As Natural Gas Blast Rocks Sun Prairie, Wisconsin

SUN PRAIRIE, Wis. -- A firefighter was killed and at least a dozen other people were injured when a natural gas explosion leveled at least two buildings in a Wisconsin community, authorities said Wednesday. A gas leak in downtown Sun Prairie led to the Tuesday evening explosion, which ignited a fire. Billowing smoke could be seen for miles.

Another firefighter suffered critical injuries in the blast and his condition was later stabilized, according to Sun Prairie Police Lt. Kevin Konopacki. Four other firefighters, a police officer and seven civilians were also hurt, Konopacki said.

The firefighter who died was with the department at least 10 years, Sun Prairie Fire Chief Christopher Garrison said.

"The Sun Prairie Fire Department is strong. We will keep on building from this. We are hurt, but we will come back," Garrison said.
