Police in a suburb of Madison, Wisconsin, are lowering the number of people taken to a hospital following a powerful explosion.
They originally said one police officer and two firefighters were taken to a hospital following the explosion Tuesday evening in downtown Sun Prairie that came after a contractor reportedly struck a natural gas line. Lt. Kevin Konopacki now says the officer was treated at the scene.
Konopacki also says some civilians were treated for minor injuries, but none were taken to hospitals. He didn’t have an exact number.
No deaths have been reported, but Konopacki says damaged buildings will be searched after flames have been extinguished.
