The wife of a volunteer firefighter killed in an explosion in downtown Sun Prairie is being sued for $138,000 due to the money owed on the local bar they owned together, according to lawsuit documents.
Capt. Cory Barr was a firefighter, local business owner and father. He was killed in an explosion in downtown Sun Prairie last summer. He co-owned the Barr House with his wife, Abby Barr, and was the captain of the Sun Prairie Volunteer Fire Department. The Barr House was destroyed in the explosion and has been closed since.
According to documents from a lawsuit filed on April 12, The Barr House and Abby Barr are being sued by Ski and Ski LLC. The lawsuit says the Barrs entered a four-year agreement to buy the Barr House for $170,000 in September 2016.
