Evacuation Area Update 7/12/18 5:11 PM

***UPDATE July 12, 2018 AT 3:52***

Investigative crews along with fire departments assets, city engineering and building inspection have been working on decreasing the perimeter of the blast area to allow business owners and residents to gather property and to secure their buildings from damage that was done as a result of the explosion.

Please find attached a map where a security fence has been erected to protect the area deemed to still be under investigation and unsafe for public access. The green area is the location of that security fence. The perimeter outside the security fenced area will be protected by law enforcement personnel. Furthermore those areas marked on the map in purple will be open only for local traffic and not through traffic with the exception of the 200 block of East Main Street where there will be no vehicle traffic allowed.

Residents have been allowed to return to their homes outside of the security fence perimeter. No residents or business owners are allowed access inside the security fence perimeter without first requesting entrance. Those requests can be made by calling Sun Prairie Police Department’s non-emergency phone number at 608-837-7336 and those requests will be evaluated by on-site safety personnel.

This continues to be an active death investigation and additional details will be made available when they are able to be released.
