The firefighters who had gone to check a gas leak battled the blaze, including 34-year-old Cory Barr, a 15-year-veteran and captain at the Sun Prairie Fire Department.
The explosion and fire followed about half an hour later, raining fiery debris on downtown streets, igniting vehicles and sending a plume of smoke into the air that could be seen for miles. The fire resulting from the explosion ignited some cars parked in the area.
Flames were spotted late Wednesday night at Glass Nickel Pizza, one of the buildings heavily damaged by Tuesday's natural gas explosion.
