SUN PRAIRIE, WIS. — Authorities in Wisconsin this week released new dashcam video showing a deadly explosion that occurred in July.

The video shows emergency crews standing near an evacuated zone in downtown Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, when the blast rocks the area.

Debris shoots into the air as people run to take cover.

Officials said the explosion happened after a private contractor hit a natural gas main.

Volunteer firefighter Cory Barr, 34, was killed by the blast. Several others were injured in the incident.
