SUN PRAIRIE (WKOW) — As Sun Prairie rebuilds from the deadly gas main explosion last July, the city’s fire department has been looking to the future.

Capt. Cory Barr was killed in the explosion and firefighter Ryan Welch was injured. Now, a new generation of recruits has stepped up to become firefighters.

“We’ve been through hell and we’re recovering every day,” said Fire Chief Chris Garrison. “We will never be the same, but we don’t expect to be the same.”

Thursday on 27 News at 10, we’ll introduce some these newest recruits who are working to be part of the department’s future.
