SUN PRAIRIE, Wis. (WMTV) -- An explosion in downtown Sun Prairie Tuesday evening leveled several buildings and prompted evacuations.

A gas leak was reported at 6:21 p.m. Reports came in after 7 p.m. that a plume of smoke was seen near Main and Bristol Street at the Barr House.

Once a residual fire is out, fire crews will go in to ventilate. All 12 gas mains have been shut down and a half mile radius has been blocked off from the scene.

Two firefighters were taken to a local hospital and a police officer was treated at the scene. There are several minor civilian injuries, all of which have been treated at the scene.

NBC15 crews captured images following the explosion.
