VIDEO: Sun Prairie’s fire Chief Christopher Garrison talked with News 3 This Morning about how the city is rebuilding six months after a fatal explosion that killed one of its firefighters. Garrison said the department is doing well and that they are moving forward. “We’re a very strong organization,” Garrison said. “We’re very family-focused and family-centered, and through that and through each other we build strength. We move forward. We have a job to do and everybody understands that and that’s what Cory would like.” Sun Prairie fire Capt. Cory Barr was killed while responding to a gas leak that resulted in the explosion that leveled part of downtown Sun Prairie. Barr and his fellow firefighters saved many lives by evacuating the area before the explosion.
